using "/" char in con: window title

Yo!, another problem happening to me with our (otherwise fine) operating system.

This works fine :
con:0/0/640/100/window title/wait/close

But this, of course, does not, because of extra slash :
con:0/0/640/100/this is a/b window/wait/close

No escape char for this available ?
Using "" just adds the quotes themselves to the title.
Same for *, %, or everything i tried.

If it can't work (as of v39) then what's the exact list of invalid characters here ?

AFAIK the only way is to find the window and call SetWindowTitles() to change it, and then you can put slashes in the title, and probably all other printable characters.

I don't want to be Captain Obvious here, but...

con:0/0/640/100/this is a\/b window/wait/close

EDIT: Captain Obvious can report that the above works with ViNCEd CON, but not original CON

Sorry, it's all about original CON: as it needs to work on just every V37+ machine.

Why does it have to be a forward slash? Cosmetic reasons?

Absolutely not. Input string could be just about anything as it's for included reusable code, and i don't like to have forbidden characters.

Try this:
Code:
BPTR con = Console("con:0/0/400/100", "a close/wait window", "close/wait");


BPTR Console(char* size, char* title, char* flags) {
  char temp[200];
  BPTR con;

  strcpy(temp, size);
  strcat(temp, "/xyz123/");
  strcat(temp, flags);

  con = Open(temp, MODE_NEWFILE);

  if (con) {
    ULONG lock;
    struct Screen* scr;
    struct Window* win;

    lock = LockIBase(0);

    for (scr = IntuitionBase->FirstScreen; scr; scr = scr->NextScreen)
      for (win = scr->FirstWindow; win; win = win->NextWindow)
        if (strcmp("xyz123", win->Title) == 0)
          SetWindowTitles(win, title, -1);

    UnlockIBase(lock);
  }

  return con;
}
