Sorry, But I have more information regarding this.

If I use the ls version 3.5 and gnuwin32.dll (I don't know where I got
this but it is on our server)  the wildcard searches work correctly.

I believe the bug (I will call it a bug because it works correctly in a
later version) lies somewhere in cygwin.dll

Thanks
Andy

BTW Please send mail directly. this group blows away my mailbox.



D:\ADI Software\CODE\HSE>ls --v
GNU fileutils 3.5

D:\ADI Software\CODE\HSE>ls locatemg.c
ls: locatemg.c: No such file or directory

D:\ADI Software\CODE\HSE>ls locatemgr.c
locatemgr.c

D:\ADI Software\CODE\HSE>ls locate*gr.c
LocateMgr.c
