I'm surprised I haven't been able to find an answer to this after googling for half-an-hour.

My filename is Default-LandscapeRight@2x.png but it cuts of the filename at the '@' sign (can't find file 'Default-LandscapeRight') within the OSX Terminal when entering a command. I tried escaping it with a slash in front, i tried putting the whole filename in single quotes but it does not do the trick.


Edit: I'm trying to add a file using SVN (Subversion). svn add Default-LandscapeRight@2x.png

Same result. Cuts off at @. – Wollan Oct 24 '12 at 13:06
That did the trick! And I was using SVN yes (add command). Post it as an answer Colonel and I will give it to you. – Wollan Oct 24 '12 at 13:08

Use @@ to escape the character in SVN:

svn add Default-LandscapeRight@@2x.png

Use svn add 'Default-LandscapeRight@2x.png'@HEAD.
