1) Ok, I understand why "ls *.txt" lists all files when no txt files exists. However
this not behavior I particularly want. tcsh and bash do not do this. Is there any
way to get "ls *.txt" to return nothing or "No such file or directory" which is what
it returns if "ls" a specific file which does not exist.
2) As far as mimedb goes "mimedb -i text/plain -a" returns nothing. I poked
around found a bunch of *.desktop files in various subdirectories
under /usr/share. So it would seem that I have to somehow tell mimedb to
look in these subdirectories. Can this be done with symbolic links or
It might be nice to have the open return some type of error message if it does
not know what to do with the file to clue the user into the problem.
