Appendix D. Patterns Format

When matching a string (a sequence of characters containing an extension or a virtual path) with a pattern, the following rules apply:

A set is made of characters or ranges. A range is formed by two characters with a - in the middle (as in 0-9 or a-z).

Preceding a special character with \ makes it loose its syntactic significance and match that character exactly. The special characters are []*?!^-\.
