Subject RE: Re: Javadoc task not correctly interpreting ** in paths?
Date Fri, 23 Nov 2001 12:00:04 GMT
  This command in UNIX show all files the one directory has inside, for example if you do:

$ ls /**

 It shows all directoies and all files that exist in that machine.

 I didnĀ“t known this before, only yesterday i saw this!
