Hey guys,


I have been going nuts trying to get something to work, for the life of me I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.

I am working with the BT3F version of crunch, and am trying to get a simple wordlist with special characters.
I have not had any difficulties using crunch before, but was then basically only using alpha-numeric.

Code I was trying was similar to the below but including more special characters;

Code:
pentest/password/crunch 4 4 0123456789!@#$%^&*() &> test.txt
result;
-bash:!@#$%^: event not found
so tried with "
Code:
pentest/password/crunch 4 4 "0123456789!@#$%^&*()" &> test.txt
result;
-bash:!@#$%^: event not found
alas

Removed the !
Code:
pentest/password/crunch 4 4 "0123456789@#$%^&*()" &> test.txt
Success.

Removing the inverted commas resulted in
-bash: syntax error near unexpected token '&>'

So basically would appreciate some pointers on what I am missing to be able to include the characters ! + "


I am sure its something silly however after looking through the posts on crunch on the forums and finding bitterly little info on the net..
turning to the pro's once more !
