Bad accent causes problem

 [1/14] from: patrick::philipot::laposte::net at: 11-Oct-2003 10:25


Hi List, Publishing photos on Internet, I got problems with filename with accent. For example, a photo named "Ebouriffe.jpg" displays well under Windows, but give me an "HTTP error 404" under Linux. I thought I could rename the file using lowercase or uppercase or even a combinaison of the two, but I can't.
>> f: %Ebouriffe.jpg
== %Ebouriffe.jpg
>> lowercase f
== %ebouriffe.jpg
>> uppercase f
== %EBOURIFFE.JPG
>> lowercase uppercase f
== %ebouriffe.jpg Do I have to write a function to handle those "" or is there some trick out there? Regards Patrick

Getting universally-acceptable files names takes a little care. REBOL.org, for example accepts script contributions whose names are (I think this is the full set of rules): -- made up only of lowercase unaccented letters, hyphens, digits, and periods (".") -- First and last cannot be hyphens or periods -- First cannot be a digit -- Maximum of one period Those rules are a little restricted (no spaces or "$" or "#" etc), but they should stand the test of time.....Though we probably need to think about a maximum file name length. Here's a function to convert accented letters. You might want to edit 'replacements to replace accents with digraphs or other multi-letter combinations. ===== deaccent: func [file-name [file!] /local accents replacements ] [ accents: ["" "" "" "" "" "" ""] replacements: ["a" "e" "e" "i" "o" "u" "c"] lowercase file-name foreach accent accents [replace/all file-name accent pick replacements index? find accents accent] ] ;; func print ["before " f] f: %Ebouriffe--.jpg deaccent f print ["after " f] ===== Sunanda.

Thank you Sunanda, I will use your function. -- Best regards, Patrick

Hi Sunanda e others, This thread reminded me that some time ago I have asked some help with foreign characters that are not echoed in REBOL/View fields and up to know I have not find any solution. I have also put some feedback to RT but it seems they are with lots of other things to do I use Debian Linux and KDE 3.1 e everything works fine but REBOL/View Do you think REBOL uses it own keyboard character maps? Is there any hack to be made? I can't enter words Portuguese words in text fields such as corao (heart) or "p " (foot) they are echoed as cora~ao and p'e :( Thanks Carlos

Not that I can be of much help, but for me it seems, that the keyboard handling is the culprit, I can copy and into an area, but I can't type it in during the keyboard (I'd have to use keyboard composition). On the other hand, german special characters , which are on their special keys work fine. Don't know if this'll help, though, Ingo

Like Ingo, I can't help you on this. You can see all the characters that REBOL supports on your system by running this View script: ===== rebol [] hex-lo: copy [across banner "ASCII Chart" return box 25x25 red "\"] hex-chars: "0123456789ABCDEF" for n 1 16 1 [ append hex-lo [box 25x25 green] append hex-lo form hex-chars/:n ] append hex-lo 'return for hn 0 15 1 [ append hex-lo [box 25x25 green] append hex-lo form pick hex-chars (hn + 1) for ln 0 15 1 [append hex-lo [box 25x25 blue] append hex-lo form (to-char 16 * hn + ln) ] append hex-lo 'return ] unview/all view layout hex-lo ===== But I don't know any way of hacking the keyboard scheme (if there is such a thing) to input extended characters, Sorry! Sunanda.

Re: Bad accent causes problem Not sure it's the key, but may be : When you typed in field/area, you call (from the engage) the ctx-text/edit-text func. This one filter the allowed characters with this line : if char? key [ either find keys-to-insert key [insert-char face key] [key: select keymap key] ] with : keys-to-insert: make bitset! #{ 01000000FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF7FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF } and : keymap: [ #"^H" back-char #"^-" tab-char #"^~" del-char #"^M" enter #"^A" all-text #"^C" copy-text #"^X" cut-text #"^V" paste-text #"^T" clear-tail ] Perhaps changing the bitset can be a solution, but it depends if you type the character with one or 2 keys. Another issue might be the terminal type that is declare in your config file. Can you use this chars in a terminal window ? DideC

I can type "", "", "" with no problem in REBOL console but in REBOL/View I can't Carlos

you mean german special characters work fine in REBOL/View? Carlos

Hi all,

the character with one or 2 keys. This bitset excludes only first control chars in the range 0-31 and 127. If you want to see the chars permitted by this View bitset, do monitor ctx-text and then double click on the item keys-to-insert. In this ways you can also see all the chars in the keymap. (you need anamonitor.r from http://www.rebol.it/~romano/) --- Ciao Romano

Yup, I can type german special characters (which have there own keys), but no other accented characters (which I type using composing). On the other hand, copying special characters over the clipboard, works. Guess we'll have to find one of the /View gurus to drill into the keyboard handling stuff ;-) Ingo

REBOL/View lack of i18n :(


Ingo and others, Really strange this behaviour of /View . Is this some lack of i18n? In fact special characters can only be entered in fields by copying & pasting nod directly via keyboard. I wonder french and spanish people beside the german pals at this list have same troubles under Linux. The thing is is RT aware of the problem?
