Re: substitution of illegal chars in filenameby lahf (Initiate)
|on Oct 04, 2003 at 14:04 UTC||Need Help??|
In the filename:
index.cgi%3Fsect = has the alt code in
index.cgi?sect = has the reserved character
Linux can read them fine as part of a filename, but say I wanted to put them onto a different system, I would have problems.
I was trying to alias the perl command like so:
alias subs="perl -pi~ -e 's/@1/@2/g' @3"
but it did something crazy, well nothing at all, except pipe out command and errors:
$ subs /www/ads/184.108.40.206/ "" legal-USAGetaway.htm
Can't open @3: No such file or directory.
Can't do inplace edit: /www/ads/220.127.116.11/ is not a regular file.
Can't open : No such file or directory.
Does that mean I'm not escaping the /'s in the command I'm aliasing, and I didn't get why it says can't open @3, does it not recognise "" as @2?
am i crazzy, or just expecting too much, or whhich part of the manual does it say that in?
