The Amber 8 User's Guide say that if a "maskstr" contains spaces or
special characters, then it should be protected by single or double
quotes (p 244). If I'm using an Amber negation operator '!' with a
c-shell based system, the '!' symbol should be interpreted as a
"history" command regardless of the use of single or double quotes.

Should I use a '\' in front of the '!' to protected from the shell?
