Hi, I am trying to run a java program which takes the argument as "*". But it is not happening. I tried printing the value of arguments passed on command line, it is giving me the packagename as the argument value, instead of "*".
I imagine it is a problem with your shell misinterpreting the symbol, and not with Java. You can try other quoting symbols, like single quote or back-tics. that MIGHT work... but i always get confused on what exactly each means in which shell.
Never ascribe to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.
