C-h f -> "dired-mark-files-regex"

   dired-mark-files-regexp is an interactive compiled Lisp function in
   `dired'.  (dired-mark-files-regexp REGEXP &optional MARKER-CHAR)

   Mark all files matching REGEXP for use in later commands.  A prefix
   argument means to unmark them instead.  `.' and `..' are never

   REGEXP is an Emacs regexp, not a shell wildcard.  Thus, use `\.o$'
   for object files--just `.o' will mark more than you might think.

Emacs knows.
