AIX filenames: unable to create directory with . (dot) sign in name
Problem occurs when i try to create dir using mkdir -p command with . (dot) sign in directory name. When dot sign is removed from name, directory creates normally. But, if i'm not mistake, dot sign isnt forbidden for filename of unix-like systems. Any suggestions?
What do you mean by "problem occurs" ? Is there an error message, or is it just that you don't see the directory after creating ?
Be sure you browse your folder with a command that show the hidden folders like ls -a :-)
I don't know AIX either, so sorry if my answer is not accurate.
