filename ends in '\' won't open in emacs or with cat command - why?
I'm not sure why this is happening, but....
I write a small file to output using python - say "this.txt".
If I run ls, or ls -l, it shows up in the listing as this.txt
If i run *.txt it doesn't show up (i'm guessing due to the \ at the end of filename)
I try to cat or open in emacs - nothing happens.
I open it in kedit or kwrite (or gedit, etc...) it opens and I can see the data.
File permissions seem in order rw-r--r-- (i'm the owner so this is ok)
if i use tab to autocmplete, the filename shows up with the '\' at the end of the filename - like this:
$> cat this.txt\ (from typing in 'thi' and hitting tab )
This is how I found it, the '\' is invisible using ls.
Any advice would be appreciated.
