How to Open ASM Trace File Starting With ‘+’

Oracle ASM trace file always starts with ‘+’, it is not working for below vi command to open and edit those kind of files:

$vi  +ASM1_ora_20007.trc

or

$vi  \+ASM1_ora_20007.trc

or

$vi  *ASM1_ora_20007.trc

or

$vi "+ASM1_ora_20007.trc"

What we do is to open those kind of files by :

1)  vi —

$ vi -- +ASM1_ora_20007.trc

OR

2) vi ./+ASM1_ora_20007.trc

$ vi ./+ASM1_ora_20007.trc
