I have a question about the
* character at the end of a directory path in a bash script.
I have a script that's supposed to automatically delete some archives from a server once they get old enough. The script is on machine A and I need to run it on machine B. I access both machines remotely through
ssh (no sudo, just regular user). One of the rules of the script is that it needs to only delete archives in the folders beginning with
However, there is no
dirE in that location so I'm guessing the
* stands for some variable. This is what I'd like to know, what does the
* mean at the end of the directory path and what does it make the script do?
