Replace ":" with "-"

Post by Der Idiot » Thu Jul 22, 2004 11:30 pm

would be nice to have such an option for the file renaming. yes I could just use the "use symbols for special chars" feature or just live with the 2 extra spaces, but neither of the 2 is really satisfying (the symbol for the ":" looks horrible imho :P ). So I would rather get the spaces replaced by "-"

just in case I was not clear enough what I want:

file listed according to anidb:

Code: Select all

Lupin Sansei: Alcatraz Connection - Complete Movie - [TAMI].avi
file on my hdd after renaming by aom:

Code: Select all

Lupin Sansei  Alcatraz Connection - Complete Movie - [TAMI].avi
what I want:

Code: Select all

Lupin Sansei - Alcatraz Connection - Complete Movie - [TAMI].avi
hopefully that wasn't requested before, but at least I couldn't find it.

It was discussed before, probably buried in a thread that I don't want to bother to look up now... :wink:

I originally thought that the place where you define custom tags would be able to handle this, but I found that was a little different.

What would be nice is a replacement table where the user could define character replacements. Having multiple characters (or even regex :P ) in here would be nice for both the source and replacement. Currently PetriW has some creative solutions, but these filenames cause problems with other programs (eMule and others) that do not work with some of these. If that could become an editable table that would be great, and users can add new values, even better.

so that was already discussed. doh.... Image

hmm sure that would even be better, but for the time being I would already be happy with just the ": to -" option. especially because that one shouldn't be that hard to implement, while the other one is surely complexer.

This is exactly what I would like to request! Maybe some kind of table where the user defines filters for char replacements. Like:

? -> [q]
: -> -
/ -> ~
etc...

Are there any chances this might be realized in one of the next versions?

greetz,

WebAOM can handle this.

Next versions?????? There are rumors that there is an AOM 0.6 in development, but most believe it is just a fairy tale.
