Traditionally, the * wildcard in a regular expression is "zero or more instances of the preceding character", so the regex "abc*def" would match "abcdef", "abccccdef" and even "abdef" (0 c's), but not "abccxccdef". It might even match "Hello abcccdef there", depending on whether the regex is considered to be anchored or not. In a traditional regex the '.' wildcard is to match any character. However, if you're writing your own regex parser, you're free to place any meaning on the wildcard characters you want.

The functionality you seem to be trying to reproduce seems very like unix file globbing. If that's what you're trying to do - and you are on a unix like system, you probably have access to glob(3), which does all the heavy lifting for you. There's probably similar functionality for windows.

But maybe you're writing a regex parser for your own purposes. In which case you're free to make up the rules you want. Either way, I'd expect any literals in the regex to be present in any matches found.
Keep Calm and Carry On
