You can open SSH resources in Emacs. Unfortunately, the pathspec used for SSH resources conflicts with possible paths in the virtual file system.
If I run
sudo mkdir "/ssh:example.com" sudo touch "/ssh:example.com/file"
, I cannot figure out a way to edit the file I just created via Emacs except moving it or creating another hard link. Is there a way to edit this file in Emacs if you can't do that, for example because you don't have write privileges in the directory where the file is?
