Yeah, I love the way you're allowed a / in filenames on the Mac. Makes me snigger... How are you copying the files over? On my Mac: [ch...@zeus]~% touch bluurgh\303\251 #\303\251 is what comes up when I make an é [ch...@zeus]~% ls 5500plugin.tar NetBeansProjects/ hist200.txt Applications/ Pictures/ hist300.txt Desktop/ Public/ hist600.txt Documents/ Rips/ hist900.txt Library/ Sites/ public_html@ Movies/ bluurghe?? xcodeJava/ Music/ drop/ [ch...@zeus]~% ls |grep bluu bluurghé [ch...@zeus]~% Look! grep supports that character, but ls doesn't show it properly... so scp works fine... [ch...@zeus]~% scp bluurghe\314\201 amnesiac.bayofrum.net:. bluurghé 100% 0 0.0KB/s 00:00 [ch...@zeus]~% ssh amnesiac.bayofrum.net 'ls |grep blu' bluurghé [ch...@zeus]~% ssh amnesiac.bayofrum.net 'rm blu*' Samba seems to do strange things though; copied it over with samba [ch...@zeus]~% ssh amnesiac.bayofrum.net 'ls |grep blu' bluurghé* [ch...@zeus]~% What's with the *? and after nfs: [ch...@zeus]~% sudo mount -t nfs amnesiac.bayofrum.net:/usr/home/chris Applications [ch...@zeus]~% cp bluurghe\314\201 Applications/ [ch...@zeus]~% ssh amnesiac.bayofrum.net 'ls |grep blu' bluurghé [ch...@zeus]~% What?? Why does it work OK with nfs and scp, but not samba? Really wouldn't bother unless you spend your time exclusively in GUI environments, just seems a real hassle.
