On our CMS that went through many versions and hosting platforms, we just came across an accented image file that would not work from it's url. So I ssh'd onto the box and tried to rename it.
However, I could not figure out how to type in it's name correctly. For instance, I know that if a file is called
my file.txt you would do something like
mv my\ file.txt my_new_file.txt but how do you move a file called
In the end, I used a wildcard and did
mv caf*.txt cafe.txt but I'm still wondering why this accented image would not work in the first place, and what would have been the proper way to handle it on unix.
