trying to update the logical volume id on a dvd ram disk. using
mkudffs --lvid=bbru_cb$dat.. however only the bbru_cb is
written..
using os/2 udf writes the whole name..
this fix is needed for amajor work project...
is there any other known characters that do not work under
mkudffs??

    Looks like the problem is the $dat is getting parsed by the
    shell (it thinks $dat is a variable). Have you tried
    escaping the $?

    e.g.
    mkudffs --lvid=bbru_cb\$dat
