Hello. I posted this question to the pyRenamer Launchpad site and didn't get a response, so thought I'd try it here. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
I'd like to use pyRenamer to identify and rename files with reserved characters in the file name. The files came from windows where I'm guessing the characters didn't cause problems.
For example, I want to replace the ? (question mark), ' (single quote), etc. I tried using the escape (\) character before the special character in the replace field on the substitutions tab, but for some reason I don't believe that method was identifying the special characters.
What is the correct way to identify a special / reserved character within a file name and replace it? A few examples would be helpful. Thanks in advance for your help.
