Hi, would this be a Unix-conform name for a directory ?
i'am planning to use the paths as hyperlinks and the substringed directorynames for Navigation in a webapp. The above String is encoded with URLEncoder.encode( "������ ?�&%-_!�$%&/()=?", "UTF-8" ) [may some special characters will be displayed different in your Browser] On windows i dont have Problems to call a directory like this...would i on Unix ? I don't have Linux machine at hand. Could someone try out, please ? Thanks cb [ March 28, 2003: Message edited by: Christian Baron ] [ March 28, 2003: Message edited by: Christian Baron ]

Hi, only in case someone is searching for this: i found out that you generally may name a directory in unix as you like, but "." and " " could cause Probs. And, of course..., the "/" is reserved. URLEncoder encodes all special characters except "." So i may give names with spaces and special characters exept "." cb
