Default [REQ] Replace special characters on mkdir

When a user mkdir with special characters, a script replaces the character special:

& = And
space = _
? = _
' = deleted
etc.

This is a script request, therefore it belongs in the Scripting - Requests category. I suggest you read the forum rules, since you seem to have a hard time following them.

hey iam,

there's a few problems with your script request:

1) if a user makes the folder and then a script tries to modify it (by renaming & -> And ...etc) it will fail because the user is still in that folder

2) the only method I could think of was to tell the user that the mkdir failed, then mkdir with the renamed syntax. Like:

MKDIR /apps/My Hate's You!!
550 Command Failed
... then script makes
/apps/My_Hates_You!! in the background

2 problems with this
1) the user won't know that it was created until he lists directory again
2) most ftp clients will tell the user that mkdir has failed and the queue item will have failed, therefore the rest of the files will not be transferred.

The best way to go about this is just deny paths with characters that you want removed or renamed and send the user a message:
"& is not an allowed character"

what about:

- script creates the "translated" directory itself
- script outputs "200 MKDIR ok."
- script returns nonzero value => ioFTPD does nothing.

?

Cant a script just make "test_space" when it gets a mkdir "test space"
And if the client sends a cwd to "test space" script auto changes it to "test_space" so the cwd will work anywayz..

Believe gl does it like this (didnt test though :P )

Code:
set chmod	755
set banned	{
"\?"
"\*"
"'"
" "
"`"
"!"
"%"
"\{"
"\}"
}
set folder [string range $args 4 end]
foreach ban $banned {
	if {[string match *$ban* $folder]} {
		regsub -all -- [subst -nocommands {[$ban]}] $folder {_} folder
	}
}
if {[set defpem [lindex [config read "VFS" "Default_Directory_Attributes"] 0]] == ""} {
	set defpem $chmod
}
catch {file mkdir $path/$folder}
catch {vfs write $path/$folder [resolve user $user] [resolve group $group] $defpem}
iputs "553 '[string range $args 4 end]' renamed to '$folder'"
global ioerror ; set ioerror 1
return 0
for some reason setting args on pre doesnt get passed to io, so fukit, try this.

If you return non-zero (or in TCL, setting ioerror to a non-zero value) you must print an error message for pre/post events. By the way, it's the client that "freezes", not ioFTPD - since the client is expecting a reply message.
