lzx 1.21 bug ?

Hi,


Is anyone able to pack with lzx 1.21r (y2k fixed) a directory which contains "(" or ")" in its name ?


Best Regards

I'm using http://aminet.net/package/util/arc/LZX_Y2Kfix and directories with "(" and/or ")" seems to work fine (pack and unpack). There exists another Y2k fix at Aminet from a different author that you may use?

Hmm. Same.

Could it be dos.lib or FS related (using pfs3aio last 19.1 beta from Toni) ?

(Un-)Pack from/to Ram: then you can exclude FS. Dos.library shouldn't make problems but check for version and patches that may cause it. Compare with other archivers like LHA. Btw. do you have the problem or someone else reported to you?

It does not work because it confuses pattern-matching.
This is why using special characters in filenames is not recommended.
Similar story with "~", "#", "?".

Even though you can trick lha (not lzx) by using #? instead of the directory name, this is calling for trouble in any case.

Then, for safety, OS should not allow naming folders/filenames with such characters. Maybe an idea for OS >3.1.4

That would indeed have been a safe thing to do but now it's too late as there already are files/dirs with these characters around.

Can you give an example of a command line you're having trouble with?

You can "escape" pattern-matching characters with the ' symbol. Like this:
Code:
> echo hello >()()()()

> list
()()()()                             6 ----rwed Today     21:59:47
1 file - 3 directories - 8 blocks used

> lzx a test.lzx '(')'(')'(')'(')

This doesn't work with directories.
