Description Need Real Name 2000-09-15 08:27:30 EDT
A script of creating a file named "sc":

srk@srk:~/foo$ cat > sc   
srk@srk:~/foo$ ls
srk@srk:~/foo$ cat sc
srk@srk:~/foo$ echo *
srk@srk:~/foo$ ls -al
total 6
drwxr-xr-x   2 srk      users        1024 Sep 15 12:27 .
drwxr-xr-x  63 srk      users        5120 Sep 15 12:24 ..

ls also ignores directories called sc (not too surprising really)

Are you sure your system has not be compromised?

This works fine in my RH6.0 w/ fileutils-4.0-1.
