Escape the $ with a backslash on Unix. The $ is a special character in most
shells - environment variables are prepended by the $.
So, "test$" becomes "test\$".

Subject: Filenames with a $ in it
This might be a UNIX idiocyncracy, but are there any limitations that
restrict a filename from having a $ in it? It appears that if we copy a
so-named file using SCP, the file cannot be opened or copied. In Windows
this is completely legal, so I had to ask.
Thanks in advance,
