Yes. The only two invalid characters in a UNIX filename are '/' and
'\0' (nul). Some characters are tricky to get into a filename from the
shell, but all except those two can be put in a filename from within a C
program for example.

That's why you have to be so very careful with program names when
writing system shell scripts; they can contain tricky things like
newlines for example... :-/.
