Response to: Dealing with single quotes in file names

Sorry for the delay in replying!
If your file name has a single quote in it (or an apostrophe as it appears in the file name) then just do this (I created a test rtf file called That's just the way it is.rtf):
mimimini:/ norburym$ scp That\'s\ just\ the\ way\ it\ is.rtf "norburym@10.0.1.7:That\'s\ just\ the\ way\ it\ is.rtf"
Password:
That's just the way it is.rtf 100% 318 0.3KB/s 00:00
mimimini:/ norburym$
Hope that helps!
