Subject [jira] Closed: (COMPRESS-120) forbidden chars on windows
Date Wed, 13 Oct 2010 21:26:39 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-120?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Torsten Curdt closed COMPRESS-120.
----------------------------------

    Resolution: Not A Problem

If you want to filter the names before extraction do so by wrapping the call to the name

  String safeName = filter(entry.getName())

IMO this is out of the scope of commons compress so closing this issue.

> while uncompressing a tar archive, which includes files and directories containing special
characters like
> private char[] forbiddenCharsWindows = new char[] { ':', '*', '?', '"', '<', '>',
'|' }; the name of the tarEntry is corrupt
> and to create the directory or file is not possible. Exceptions occurs while creating
them.
> it would be better to replace them with '_'  instead to respond invalid entrynames.
