 * My discoveries: For Win2K:
 * Wildcards are automatically expanded before your program sees them.
 * Who does it? the JRE.  It does not happen in C exe or assembler com utilities..
 * You get a list of matching files INCLUDING matching directory names,
 * but not the files in those subdirectories. Since directories normally
 * don't have extensions, you won't see the problem with *.html but you will
 * with s*.* or *.*.
 * If the wildcard does not match anything, you get the raw wildcard.
 * The wildcard in quotes gives you the raw wildcard.
