This will add support for multi-byte file name on onsafe method of file class. The default is full backward compatible, and not using multi-byte file name.

Wouldn't it make sense to always support multibypte characters? (without the argument)

Also I wonder if phputf8 doesn't have some function that could help you.

I left it without support by default for backward compatibility.
If you found phputf8 function that make this trick, please, let me know.

I don't even know what your change does, I don't speak regex ;) That's why I haven't pulled it either.

{
- $regex = array('#(\.){2,}#', '#[^A-Za-z0-9\.\_\- ]#', '#^\.#');
-
- return preg_replace($regex, '', $file);
+ if ($multibyte)
+ {
+ $search = "/\?%*:|\"<>#;()&;, ";
+ return str_replace(str_split($search), '_', $filename);

Shouldn't we use something that is UTF-8 safe here? Perhaps a preg_replace with the u modifier to ensure we don't clobber parts of multibyte characters?

@oc666 I'd love to see this get merged. Would you mind putting together a few test cases so that we can verify that everything works as expected? I do think that we may have an issue with multibyte characters, but trust that you can/will test that out for us. I'm going to close this until we get a couple of tests to ensure everything works and we don't have any regressions down the road. Please re-open this when you get that sorted out.

@LouisLandry, can you guide me to some simple guide or example for Joomla unit test?

Thanks, Ofer
