hi all,

Do you know why it caused the issue in yellow? 
I copied the same sample which generate sub tasks and support wildcard selections.
any help would be much appreciated.


name [dir_path] 354                   %doit create_file
.  create_file:file0.txt
.  create_file:file1.txt
.  create_file:file2.txt
name [dir_path] 355                   %doit create_file:file*
doit: No match.

name [dir_path] 356                   %pip show doit
Name: doit

I guess the shell is trying to expand the "*".
Try "doit create_file:file*".

# without wildcard - it works just fine
$ doit create_file:file1 -opt +x

#  wildcard with params
$ doit create_file:file* --opt +x
ERROR: cmd `run` invalid parameter: "--opt".Must be a task, or a target.

is there any way to use both wildcard and param
