From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

     Question mark is used, along with colon for C's lazy
     triadic "if" operator (similar to the IIF function in
     Visual Basic).  The expression x?y:z evaluates x, then if x
     is true it returns y else it returns z.
     In Unix shell file name patterns, question mark matches
     any single character.
