Output all files fitting the pattern

-bash-3.2$ ls /tmp/?[0-9]* | sort -r
ls: /tmp/?[0-9]*: No such file or directory

It means what it says; there's no files in /tmp/ which meet the criteria.

Could you give an example of the sort of filename you want to match?

That behavior would only occur if the argument to ls is quoted or if pathname expansion is disabled (very unlikely).

Oh, yeah ... that too. Smilie

For the benefit of the OP, if your pattern doesn't match any pathname, it isn't expanded. It is passed to the command as is.
