Retrieving Objects Using Wildcards
When you are retrieving objects, you can enter wildcard characters for object names, their extensions, and directory names. You cannot use wildcards in place of version numbers.
The match syntax is
An asterisk (*) can replace any number of characters.
A question mark (?) can replace any one character. When the question mark is entered alone, you get the complete listing of the appropriate objects in the directory.
If you retrieve a file from a non-working directory, rename the file and then save it, the renamed file is saved to the directory from which it was originally retrieved. It is not saved in the current working directory.
