In bash command prompt you can execute: set -o noglob
Then none of the above is expanded -- in any of your commands
To inverse this setting, enter set +o noglob
In zsh, one could execute command line: noglob <command> args -- in which
case expansions are not done in the execution of that command line. Just
that IIRC zsh has not been made available for MSYS.
