A script I wrote named a file "() - ." according to Filezilla. Filezilla was unable to delete it from the server so I tried to "rm "() - ." from inside the containing folder and received "rm: cannot remove `() - .': No such file or directory". I then used "ls" which shows...
() - . 03_The_Kill_30_Seconds_to_Mars.mp3 Crooked X (Crooked X) - 08 Nightmare.mp3 01 Attack - 30 Seconds to Mars.mp3 03 Wave of Mutilation - Pixies.mp3 Danzig (Danzig) - 01 Twist Of Cain.mp3
It lists the file in question though here it looks like it might contain a leading space and mabey two spaces between the "-" and the ".". So I tried to "rm" many combinations of spaces mixed between the other characters with no success.
I also tried renaming it but with the same error.
My fallback is to replace it with a 0KB file of the same name but, I'd rather delete it, (read- I'm OCD and it's irritating me that it shows up in "ls")
Thanks for any help.
