Meta-character issues?
Authored by: navratil on May 02, '03 01:18:21PM
There seems to be an issue with having shell meta-characters in the name of the track -- if a song has an ampersand, single (or double?) quotes, parenthesis, etc it won't be displayed. Interestingly (to me), dollar signs don't appear to cause problems.

Of course, this appears to be some sort of limitation in lsof, rather than the script offered. Does anyone know a way around this?
