Think you meant echo, not ls.  You should quote the wildard, as in

  echo '*.pyc' >> .hidden

If you don't quote and you happen to have a file matching the wildcard
in the current working directory, you won't achieve quite the effect you
had intended.


It is impolite to tell a man who is carrying you on his shoulders that
his head smells.
