Mac File locations not EXACTLY working.


Recommended Posts

To start off I'm still learning Bash, so the answer may be very simple (I'm hoping that is gap in my education)

I have a very helpful bash script that I used to remove malware from customer's Macs. The script works great. However when attempted to convert the script to DuckyScript I noted that the "~" does not show up in the terminal window, sending the command to the wrong folder. 

QUACK STRING  ls ~/Library/LaunchAgents/ >> $lootdir/LaunchAgentsUSER.txt

My question is there a better way to write this?

Have you tried to wrap the string with quotes?

I.e.
"~/Library/LaunchAgents/ >> $lootdir/LaunchAgentsUSER.txt"

or... escaping the special character
\~/Library/LaunchAgents/ >> $lootdir/LaunchAgentsUSER.txt

I was under the impression that the quotes would be sent to the terminal ?  (Not saying that My impression is correct). This is something I'm going to try! 

Thank you very much and I will post the results of your suggestion.
