Subject RE: NT: spaces in paths
Date Thu, 23 Oct 1997 20:46:01 GMT
Windows NT uses UNICODE in the implementation of the representation of the 
names of objects,
such as files. The UNICODE character set is an international standard with a 
large number of
character set classes.

	Their own docs on Windows NT 4.0 Workstation (what I run here) says that:

	A filename can contain up to 255 characters, including spaces. But, it cannot
	contain any of the following characters: \ / : * ? " < > |

	Note that I am running the (US) English version so things may be different in other
	languages/

And you are right. Microsoft did not invent the use of spaces in filenames, and 
filename canonicalization.
But neither did Apple. But  Xerox Parc palo-alto research labs didn't invent it 
either.
You've got to go way back to the earliest timesharing days at MIT for that.

	Hmmm. I don't recall saying that Apple invented it (neither did IBM whose HPFS
	file system under OS/2 supported spaces in filenames before Win95 came out).
