Thanks for the clarifications Mohammad-reza.

Good point! Can you add those special characters ;-)?

Thanks Mohammad for the corrections :)

Yeah, regarding filename limitations, at first I wanted to rule out the 20-22 unix shell special characters. But then I said to myself, maybe we can come up with a simpler convention by only allowing :alnum:, -, and /.

Anyways, the discussion around "filenames" is related to the filesystem specifications (specifically limitations) as well as shell internals when filenames are not stores as strings.

Just as a reference:
[apart from / and NUL, there are no limitations for ext2+ and btrfs. As for xfs and hpfs the only limitation is NUL].

Regarding shell special characters when filename is not stored as string, I think we should add the following characters to the list in the 'case' in Commit c6a4aaad62a9:

  • ~
  • |
  • `  (archaic)
  • [ , ]
  • ' , "
  • < , >

Thanks a lot Mohammadreza, it has been merged into Maneage as Commit c6a4aaad62a9 :-).

This was an important piece of information and I am happy that Maneage users now have it as a LaTeX macro to use in their paper anywhere they want.

I just made some small corrections:

  • The 'clear' statement in '--check-config' is removed because in many cases, people want to compare with previous seconds (or just scroll up to see when a software was built).
  • I noticed that instead of searching for meta-characters, the commit was only limiting the build directory to have these characters: 0-9, a-z, A-Z, with '/' and '-'! This is very limited: for example people may have their directory names in different languages, or they commonly use characters like '_'. Generally, its good to specifically match with known problematic characters, not limit the user to very few of them ;-). So I corrected the check to only break if known problematic characters are present. We can easily add new problematic characters if anyone confronts a problem later ;-).

Following the discussion in https://savannah.nongnu.org/task/?15741#comment9 [task #15741-comment9], it is important to document CPU architecture with which the project was built.
