The other day at work I tried doing
scp remotehost:~/*.txt .
and I received an error about the
*.txt file not found sorry, not at work and I forget the exact error
on my workstation I run
zsh 4.3. on the remotehost
bash is the default shell, and the version of
zsh is older (4.2 vs 4.3) on that. I then tried switching to bash on my workstation, and doing the exact same command. This time it worked. What is the root 'cause of this. Is there anyway to do globbing, or wildcards between these 2 systems (without switching to bash)?
