Request: Add a file name mapping modifier

Post by odwofford » Wed Dec 21, 2016 3:51 pm

In the process of using tags to create folder names to reorganize media files, I have run into the problem where characters that are legitimate in the tags are not allowed by Windows File Explorer. For instance the / character or the : character. It would be ideal if there was the ability to define translations of ASCII characters that should be used in file or folder naming. Something like the following:

0D0A=
19=
22=27
23=
25=
26=616E64
2A=2D
2B=616E64
2C=
2E2E2E=20
2F=2D
3A=2D
3C=2D
3E=2D
3F=
5C=2D
7C=2D

These are the two-digit Ascii character codes, so multiple characters can be mapped. Essentially, the pattern on the left gets replaced by the pattern on the right when folders are created.

This was the original intention of the Find Replace plugin as it was supposed to be a Modifier as opposed to a Method. I'm not really sure why I changed it at the last minute, to be honest.

I'll add a new Find Replace Modifier plugin for FileSieve 4.09 which should do what you require.

Added a task on Tracker.BootBlock.co.uk for status information.
