Are you running on a Unix system? If so, then *. matches files with a period as the last character. Files without an extension may not have that period. '*' matches files without a period, but it also matches all files.

If you are running on a Windows system and using CVSNT version 2.0.51d (the one I tested with), then '*' matches a file without an extension. Unfortunately, it also matches all files.

I'm not sure there's a way to specify "all files without an extension" that also doesn't match "all files". Maybe this is a bug in CVS.

But then, one could claim that your C compiler has a bug. :-)

Just out of curiosity, what C compiler are you using?
