That is because your shell expands "t*" into "toto.txt" before invoking svn.
What svn sees is "svn update toto.txt".

Because "t*" matched no files, your shell left it unchanged. svn sees "svn
update t*", and reports that it cannot find a file named "t*".

Try doing "echo svn update t*" under different circumstances. It will show
how the command is modified by your shell before svn is invoked.

Yes, but you need to do something like "svn update $( find . -name '*.java'
)" to ensure that svn has the right arguments when it is invoked.
