What about

Just a quick note:
you only need one * character. If you only want to match names with a specific number of characters, use the ? instead.

* matches zero or more characters
? matches one character

I was using "*"s as a visual aid - should have explained that!

Sure, though, using a ? will hit everything in the directory. I like :-)
