I am looking for lines that literally have a greater than character (a ">") followed by a space followed by a backslash character (a "\") i.e., a line with this: > \
I thought escaping would allow this, and for the greater-than it does:
$ ack-grep "\> "
returns lines that have "> " in them.
But when I try to escape the backslash as well I get:
$ ack-grep "\> \\"
ack-grep: Invalid regex '\> \':
Trailing \ in regex m/\> \/
