I've been trying this for a while now, and have gotten nowhere. In c-shell, say I have a variable var. If I want to echo the literal variable name (not its value), I would do:
Which prints '$var' on the screen. Now, if I do the same through rsh, I get nothing:
rsh somemachine echo '$var'
And I get null. Any clues as to how to pass something with a $ in it protected from the shell through rsh to another machine?
