File names and GarageBand to iTunes exports
Authored by: gadgeto on Oct 01, '06 01:02:58PM

The "/" was a perfect legal charcter in the old pre OS X days.

If you use it for example in a filename OS X simply renames abc/def to abc:def, which you can verify with the terminal and ls.

Or do a "touch abc:xyz" in terminal and you will find a file named "abc/xyz".

Interessting thing is, if you try to save something like abc:xyz in a finder dialog box it will simply refuse the ":" and make it a "-" for you.

.signature: file not found.
