If Python saves file on extended 4(Linux) partition that contains unusual symbol(so far uncovered square brackets  ). It automatically quotes file name.
will be saved as
In Linux, extended 4 partition "file.txt" is a valid file name.
Why is it happening and can it be avoided? I can create a work around, by removing first and last symbol of file name, but I plan to run my app on many platforms. So I'd rather nip it in the bud early.
Python3 is used on AMD64 platform Linux Gentoo with ext4 partition.
print('\ndebug:triggered sf mode, name of file below \n') clientsocket, addr = serversocket.accept() filename = clientsocket.recv(10240) filename = filename.decode('UTF-8') app_output(filename) mode = 'valid' clientsocket.close() clientsocket, addr = serversocket.accept() incmdata = '1' somefile = open(filename, 'w+') somefile.close() while len(incmdata) !=0: incmdata = clientsocket.recv(1024 * 8) print('this is filename: ', filename) somefile=open(filename, 'ab') somefile.write(incmdata) somefile.close() app_output('file supposedly recieved')
filename variable is something client sends to miniserver.(actually client catches positional variable)
this is output:
file.txt this is filename: file.txt this is filename: file.txt
