Using wildcards

You can use wildcards (characters "*" and "?") to specify multiple files in a single operations. 

Wildcard "*" matches any number of arbitrary characters, while "?" matches exactly one arbitrary character.

To illustrate: "*.test.??" matches "foo.test.10" and "bar.test.11", but does not match "foo.test.1" or "foo.est.10".
