I found that there is a symlink generated by ruby which has a @ sign at the path:

default -> /Users/MyUserName/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p247@gemset

The folder /Users/MyUserName/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p247 exists, but what is the @gemset part ?


The @ character in your example is part of the filename. Most modern *nix filesystems support everything with the exception of \0 and / in filenames. There is nothing special about the @ character.
