It's impossible to do for example:
cd TES* (if only one dir matches the wildcard)
All of the above commands do work in any normal shell, but not in mc.
However after defining the follwing alias in bash
I can use ccd %D', ccd $VAR' etc. in mc.
I wish this could be possible without the alias - either support for
such an advanced features could be added to mc, or mc could provide a
way to disable the internal cd in favour of the shell built-in one."
