Some how when I compile my code the server adds a ? to the directory created
Can I read from a directory which has a "?" in its name

It may depend on the platform. Windows XP doesn't let me add a ? to a directory in the Explorer, but I expect unix/linux allows it. If you quote a filename, unix will allow pretty much anything.

What happens when you try to read a file from the directory?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
