I had to wipe my drive and reinstall windows, which also required reinstalling cygwin.
In my new install,
ls -l "*\'*"
ls: cannot access '*\'\''*': No such file or directory
For years up until this point,
ls -l *\'* would present me a list of directories and files where users had included a single quote in file or directory names.
Any tips on what I may be missing about this situation?
For example, apparently coreutils had some changes that caused files with spaces in the name to be listed as 'This File contains spaces' and a switch/variable had to be used to turn it off.
I'm wondering if some similar change in standard use was implemented regarding the single quote.
