c++.beta - wildcard support in DMC++

I would really like to see DMC++ support wildcard string. I believe Walter could
do it, perhaps he is just busy on D. Well, I'd found an article about wildcald
expansion in C and it's very portable, hope that could save Walter's time to
make DMC++ support wildcard.

Thanks.

What do you mean by "wildcard support"? Wildcard support on the command line, e.g., "dmc -c -mn *.cxx"? You suggestion is one of those 90-10 suggestions: 90% of the time, no one would really use it, 10% of the time (or considerably less), it's almost useful for projects that ultimately get thrown away ("one-offs"). Not sure I'd be all that supportive of it as a feature.

I remember it worked in Zortech C/C++ 3.x. This feature is a part of DMC library -- try to look for a macro WILDCARDS in dos.h. Sergey

It's still there.
