I have thought that a "*" is a wild card for string matching,
which is supposed to match anything including the empty string?
Then, can someone explain why `* does not produce
anything But `*`* does below?
The above makes no sense to me at all. This is the
help on Names:
Names["string"] gives a list of the names of
symbols which match the string.
so, then means the string "abs`*" should generate a result,
if the string "abc`*`*" does , which it did !
Does Mathematica uses a different definition of the "*" for
string matching than the one we learned in school?
