I'm using 'copy' in a console window in Windows XP Pro (So I'm using DOS commands basically)
I have files with three characters plus an extension and files with two chars plus an extension. I have the following in an ms-dos batch file...
copy ???.gif n:\inetpub\wwwroot\images
which as far as my understanding of windows/dos wildcards is concerned should copy ONLY those files that have three characters in their name. But it's copying the files with two characters also.
My understanding must therefore be wrong, so is there another way in an ms-dos batch file to limit a copy to only files with a specific number of chars in their name?
