Re: files without package

|"  /etc/passwd~
|"  Looks like a temp file. Can anyone shed some light on this?
|"  /usr/bin/[*
|"  This is junk. Blow it away.

If the '*' is part of the filename, I agree. If not, this is necessary for
shells that do not have test as a builtin. It should be a hardlink to 'test'
(necessary for constructs like 

if [ $1 = $2 ]
echo equal

|"  /dev/initctl|
|"  /dev/printer=
|"  /dev/xconsole|
|"  Are there really these symbols on the end?

I guess it's output from ls -F.
