CAP-13: Defining the meaning of "*"
In looking up the defintiion of "*"
and "*.*" I tried to find it in the CAP-13 text or the ABNF and
I cant find it actually defined anywhere really. I did find 1 defintion
in relation to permissions:
all = "*"
and this bit related to UPNs in Section
9.3 VCAR Component:
CUs and UGs" are
specified by the UPN value "*".
but I found no other text or ABNF that
defined the use of "*" to mean "All sub-components and all
properties" the way we use it in Section 6.1.1 CAL-QUERY Value Type
and throughout CAP. I know we all take it to be "all matches"
or "all items" as in a regexp match but we really should explicitly
define what "*" means since we use it frequently in CAP.
I propose we add the following line
to Section 6.1.1 somewhere near the top:
properties and subcomponents are specified by the cap-cols value "*".
PS: Note to editor: The leading DQUOTE
on that cited sentence from Section 9.3 should be removed.
