      Description

      Hello!  I'm looking for assistance with the standard ECL library function STD.File.RemoteDirectory().  The documentation referring to the "mask" parameter is a little vague and I was hoping to get some guidelines as to what syntax/regex to use for this parameter and maybe have that added to the ECL Standard Library documentation.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  If the only meta-characters available for the mask are "?*", could the syntax be expanded to at least something like the Scooter Software: http://www.scootersoftware.com/v4help/index.html?file_masks.html

       

      Also we've created another JIRA for this same issue, but was told it could be on the wrong JIRA system:  https://jira.rsi.lexisnexis.com/browse/EUA-27
