File masks are used to choose several source files for a transformation by the command line program tetra_cl. Similar to regular expressions masks determine a pattern of text, which will be compared with the names of the files. Masks are using the Meta characters '?' and '*'.
The meaning of the question mark '?' inside of a file mask may not be confused with the meaning in regular expressions.
A question mark '?' is a dummy for a single character, that must appear in the file name at the corresponding position.
A star '*' represents an arbitrary sequence of characters.
*.pas matches all files with the extender "pas"
*.ht? matches for example "index.htm" or "index.html"
tt*.* matches for example "tt_error.h", "tt_error.cpp" or "tt.txt"
