    Default [SOLVED] Help with special characters in aircrack/cowpatty

    Hey,

    I've been stumped by this problem for a while.
    When using aircrack or cowpatty, they can't seem to read my dictionary files correctly as I have special characters in it " !$)^ "
    Aircrack will just say the password is not in the file, and cowpatty returns an error about an unexpected token " ') "

    I've read, and re-read, this article on special characters
    aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=faq#how_to_use_spaces_double_quote_and _single_quote_etc._in_ap_names
    but I am still confused.

    Thanks

    It seems learning about escape characters is a must
    To sum it up briefly:

    Before any special character (which includes a white space), insert a backslash " \ ".
    ie.
    £2*"s*!
    would become: \£2\*\"s\*\!
