Hello Experts,

     When I created files in my directory, I make some mistake and include special characters in the file name. Therefore, I can not remove the file now !!! It is like :
----------------------------
home> ls
  meow@
home> rm meow@
  meow@: No such file or directory
-------------------------
 Therefore, is there anyway I can delete meow@ ??? Thanks a lot !!!

meow.....

First of all, this might be a symbolic link to another file. Try 'rm meow'.
Otherwise you can try 'rm meow\@'

It it IS a symbolic link, 'ls -l' will show something like
meow -> otherfile.txt
