CLI basic question: wildcards


Been some time since I was behind an Amiga shell, and although I re-learn quickly there's one thing that I can't remember.

How do I apply a command to all files in a folder?

For example, in UNIX you'd use
cp /home/* /otherdir/
What I wanna know is, what's the Amiga CLI equivalent of * ? I can't find anything online about this.

Edit: found it, never mind.

'#?' is the equivalent on AmigaOS.

Send a message via MSN to cosmicfrog
and the ? is equivalent to 1 char and can be used more than once
