Linux Special characters in a shell (@, , €, ~)
Let’s explore the usage of special characters in a shell environment, specifically focusing on Linux and macOS systems. These special characters, such as “@”, “”, “€”, “~”, and “|”, can be particularly useful when working with commands and scripts.
Here we go
right alt + Q = @
right alt + ß =
right alt + ^ = | right alt + e = € right alt + n = ~
ctrl + left alt + q = @
ctrl + left alt + ß =
ctrl + left alt + ^ = | ctrl + left alt + e = € ctrl + left alt + n = ~~
with a mac keyboard
opt + n = ~ opt + l = @ opt + 7 = | opt + shift + 7 = \
show hidden files on macos:
shift + command + .
Have fun with different keyboard settings on different platforms especially when ‘flavored’ with different language configurations - you’ll start loving complex passwords…
