  • 462 How to exclude files with no extension?

    How may I exclude just files with no extension? "*" does not do.

    Thanks.

      One way I know:
      Include files with an extension: *.?*

      We may be looking at other ways to represent without an extension.

        Thanks, but unfortunately that prangs the effect of other Include Files terms.

        Well... what's wrong with '*' ?

        It is really odd that currently '*.*' matches file that have no '.'

          The fact that *.* and * match all files is standard Windows behavior dating back to CP/M. If you have a problem with it you'll have to talk to Microsoft.

            Perhaps I shouldn't point out that BC3 fails to accord in e.g. Alignment...

            I have no problem with Microsoft software doing that. The reason being that I've chosen not to use Microsoft software for filename matching. Instead I use e.g. BC3 hoping (and usually finding) it not to be hamstrung by compatibility with decades-old legacies.
