Yes, that is what I wanted, however could't, express in my posting. Obviously it's time for me to wish my keyboard a goodnight for today. Thank you very much. Appreciate your tutoring!

@Kevin, thank you for making this clear. Of course I checked on the behaviour of all terms discussed before I expressed my doubts, but apparently not attentively enugh. Now that you encouraged me to double-check, I found the embarassing mistake I made earlier and am now entirely convinced. Thanks for the help of both of you! I will happy to follow your advise in the future.

You got me again. I edited accordingly and drew back even further. I hope you'll show the mercy of not proving me wrong another time.

Made further corrections in order to be less ashamed by comments pointing out that parts of the answer are speaking too broadly to be entirely true.

Good point! I'm used not to having whitespace in file names, so I didn't think of word splitting. But to be honest, even on paths containing spaces, it doesn't really make a difference if I use $* or $@, quoted or not. We talking bash here?

Thank you for sharing that detail, I modified my answer to be of a less absolute tone. But: neither is there a reason to have quotes involved in glob expressions. If the quotes were around the wildcard, nothing would be expanded at all. This is why I kinda wanted to have them out of the way in this case.

+1. I like the sugguestion to use set. Maybe you should have described a way to process its results, too. I still think Ley is intending something like for GIT_DIR in $*; do cd $GIT_DIR; dostuff; cd ~; done. Thank you for your informative answer.
