The primary way to identify registry objects is by name. However, you normally identify RegistryPackage objects by the path from the registry root to the RegistryPackage. For example, /registry/userData is the path to the userData RegistryPackage.
Some matches for names support wildcards. Use a question mark (?) to match a single character. Use an asterisk (*) to match zero or more characters.
Some commands (for example, cd and chown) support identifying objects by their Uniform Resource Name (URN), which must include a leading urn:. For example, urn:uuid:2702f889-3ced-4d49-82d1-e4cd846cb9e4 is a valid URN.
The chown and cp commands also support the use of %number to refer to a User listed by a previous users command.
For some commands, you can enter names that contain spaces by enclosing the entire name in double quotes or by preceding each space in the name by a backslash.
The select command supports the use of SQL wildcards: the percent sign (%) to match multiple characters, and the underscore (_) to match a single character.
