Not in globs. In a glob, '?' matches any one character, '*' matches
any zero or more characters.
In a regex, '.' matches any one character, '?' matches the preceding
atom zero or one times, '*' matches the preceding atom zero or more
times, and '+' matches the preceding atom one or more times.

$ man 7 glob
$ man 7 regex
