Hi Duy, the semantics of "git checkout -- '*'" is quite clear because there is no expansion done by the shell. The wildcard is passed to git checkout, that interprets is properly.
That of "git checkout -- *" is the problem when the directory is empty. Note that this happens with the shell that is shipped with git (in the windows distro). A note in the documentation could help the user to understand this. -Angelo -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
