Command Line Parameter "Asterisk" (*)
Most Linux shell command lines expand the asterisk character according to the so called globbing operators. This means that it is actually expanded to the list of files and directories in the current working directory. If the asterisk character should be passed to the application instead of the list of files / directories, it needs to be set into quotation marks.
