Re: bin/31107 (scp can't handle remote file names with '(' in them)

Synopsis: scp can't handle remote file names with '(' in them

When I do
   scp otherhost:\(* .
the local shell expands the *. If I write
   scp otherhost:'\(*' .
it works perfectly as I would expect - it fetches all remote files that
match the glob \(*. What behavior were you expecting/trying to achieve?
I would expect that any quoting at the other end that would protect
parens would also inhibit remote wildcard expansion, which would be
highly undesirable.
