Four of your ten test cases were valid filenames which opened correctly. Five of the six invalid names correctly failed to open. For the sixth invalid name, windows took the strange corrective action you describe as a 'feature'. I do not have a clue what makes this name special. We have no idea how other invalid names may be handled. Code which makes any assumptions about invalid names is simply not 'bullet-proof'. Your simple test probably finds enough errors to be useful. You may even consider it an advantage that it allows some special cases that are not strictly valid.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
