Lets say that I have a file (executable) called literally 'a\b'. It just echoes some stuff. Now I want to call that and I can do it by inputting
into my console. Now lets write this into a variable
and now I want to execute this file 'a\b' by using backticks. Here is the result:
user@machine:~/test$ `$COMMAND` a: command not found user@machine:~/test$
So, here is my question: How can I make this work?
Ive tried numerous ways and played around with '' and multiple backslashes in COMMAND but nothing worked...
I know its senseless but I just want to know how bash and `` work together to interpret things
