I'm not sure what you mean: I want a list of the files ending with .pyc 
in the current directory put in the file called .hidden in the current 
directory, why would I be trying to hide files matching *.pyc in a 
directory with no .pyc files in it?

Nautilus will hide any files in listed in .hidden, it does not support 
wildcards/regex in .hidden (as far as my limited testing goes, anyway).
