Special filenames

Recommended Posts

Only to let you know, that we have found these two files in the override directory after biffing:

 

K#AureP&.wav
K#AureP^.wav

Both filenames have a very special character in it, which should normally not be used (& ^).

 

Greetings Leomar

Leomar is refering to this topic, and this and the next post where it's said:

The author of those files deserves a slow, painful death for using ... or special characters in file names. I will tighen my regexp to ensure only valid files will be biffed anyhow, thank you for your report.
So, it's not a huge unsurmountable obsicle, but it's still quite large, as it makes more work for others. Edited by Jarno Mikkola

The world will not explode with an extra 2 files in the override.

 

The caret and the ampersand have special meanings on Unix (which includes OSX), FWIW. (Then again, so does almost everything in some context or another.) Just a minor heads-up.
