comment bash: how to pass command line arguments containing special characters
In bash, double-quoting does not bypass expanding variables "$HOME" or parameters "${USER:-root}", command substitution in either form "$(date)" or "`date`", arithmetic expansion "$((1 + 2))", history expansion "!!" or backslash escaping "\\". Use single quotes instead. See the man page of the bash manual, the section titled "Quoting".
