*N*X general ^M question


Does anyone know if non-printing characters can be used in filenames and passwords?

If so how do you use them and how do you get them back out?

I'm pretty sure that nonprinting characters can be used in filenames, but I think that they are illegal in passwords. I could be wrong though.
