Note also this behaviour from Bash:

$ echo fpc*
fpc fpc.tar fpcbuild-2.2.4.tar.gz fpcbuild-2.4.0.tar.gz
$ echo fred*

So * is expanded if files match, but is passed through unchanged if not. 
This means that if your program isn't expanding * based on what's in a 
directory, there are some cases where it will be behaving the same as 
the shell :-)
