Script to list all filesystem objects with ACLs
Authored by: xr4ti on Aug 22, '08 07:18:06PM

It sounds like something wrong with the text inside the quotes after the "tr" commands. If you're sure you changed the ^A and ^B text to <ctrl>A and <ctrl>B, it's possible it's related to your locale settings or some default in your shell.

Try experimenting with a simpler command from Terminal, like:

ls -al | tr -s '
' '<ctrl>v<ctrl>A'

and see if you get an error.
