Exception triggered by unusual filename #1510
Throws exception in refreshTreeOnOpen at startup: "does not appear to be a local path".
Have a file named "TEST_ Month End Madness – what will you get for just $1, $2 or $3? .eml" in your home directory. Hex dump of filename:
00000000 54 45 53 54 5F 20 4D 6F - 6E 74 68 20 45 6E 64 20 TEST_ Month End
I'm guessing it doesn't like the en-dash in the middle.
Komodo Edit or IDE? IDE
-- eg. Error logs, screenshots, workarounds --
Note in my original test I created it from my terminal and then pointed Komodo at it.
When I try to create it from Komodo it creates it but it cannot open it:
When I press Yes it creates a file with the name
Based on that I'd say the question mark is the issue.
Personally I'm ok with Komodo not supporting files with question marks in their name, but it should fail gracefully.
It's the "-" in the file name and I don't know why. It has something to do with the encoding of the character but how Komodo is failing is beyond me. I'll share what I have found so far.
Noteable (all of this is run in the python shell, python 2.7):
