PPM Support Tip: Escape special characters in kEncrypt.sh passwords
When using kEncrypt.sh with a $ symbol in the password on Linux platform, escape the $ in the password
Run $ ./kEncrypt.sh -t "test$123" through command prompt.
Password shows as "test23" instead of "test$123".
"$" is a special character to quote variables in the shell.
Escape the "$" in the password before passing it to the kEncrypt.sh.
Replace the "$" in the password with "\$".
For example: sh ./kEncrypt.sh -t "test\$123"

Re: PPM Support Tip: Escape special characters in kEncrypt.sh passwords
UNIX shells have a set of characters that have special meaning. The dollar sign is one. Other common special characters are the backslash (\), double quotes (") and backtick (`). Since the command line used to call kEncrypt.sh will first be processed by the shell, any special character needs to be preceeded by the escape character (\). Check the documentation for the shell you are using for a list of special characters that it defines.
