      Description

      In the accumulo shell you cannot scan for a row that has a literal quote in the key, e.g.

      "foo"

      Trying the following:

      scan -b "foo
      scan -b \"foo

      will not return any results.

      It is possible to do this via the Java API, but not from the shell.

        It probably won't be supported, because it's hard... but there will
        probably be support for a standalone command so you can do your
        quoting in bash (or your preferred shell) in 1.6 (ACCUMULO-1045).
