Names to UTF-8?
My weekly Tarsnap cron job emails me a raft of errors that I have
been studiously ignoring....
tarsnap: directoryname/Wells FargoÂ Account SummaryÂ .pdf: Can't
translate pathname 'directoryname/Wells FargoÂ Account SummaryÂ .pdf' to
These are files that I download from institutions - for example, my
bank. I have no control over the names. Apparently,
the bank indulges in cute little "trademark" signs etc.
Can anybody suggest a strategy for dealing with this? It would be OK by
me to writei a script to rename the files to something sensible, or to
program Tarnsap to tolerate these names - without changing its behavior
otherwise. But I would rather not rename them by hand - there's a lot
of them, and more will appear in time.
Thanks in advance,
