I want to check the absence of the following sequence of characters
$$$$$ (i.e., 5 dollar signs) in a
json file using
grep as it has been used instead of comma to separate fields and I need to make sure this did not cause conflicts with existing similar sequence.
However, when I grep
$, I get similar number of lines. It seems that
$ is a special character for end of line?
How can i search for
$$$$$ using grep?
$ a special character?
