Request: renamer compatibility function

Post by marsh » Wed May 26, 2010 6:20 am

Some filenames which MS users use can be problematic on Linux (at least with some command line applications). The reverse is true also, I imagine. An interesting feature for the renamer would be to have a way to clean up filenames to make them more universally acceptable on all supported OS. Such as changing all the spaces, apostrophes, special/reserved characters in one pass.
