On an empty dir:
touch file.exetouch file.imgtouch file?doesn't create the corresponding file.
touch helppcp helpp file
cp: can't create regular file «file»: File exists
On rm file it removes the file.exe instead of saying file not found.
Is this behavior intended? This is not unix like, the filename should be preserved as is.
