Subject Special characters in manual?
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2001 13:52:35 GMT
Are special characters in the manual?

I was having a problem with my ant script in which I was using telnet
to rename some of my files.  This was done because of a bug in BEA
Weblogic 6.1s T3File access.

The line was:

<write string="for file in *.xml ; do mv $file null$file ; done"/>

When I watched my build script work,  I noticed that the dollar signs
($) dissappeared.  My first thought was that the dollar signs were
special characters, so I doubled each of them and the script worked

Is it documented anywhere in the manual that the dollar sign is a
special character, AND, are there any more special characters?

This I declare of the Lord:  He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and
I am trusting himů"
