Double space in filenames get swiped

When sending a filename using dcc, mirc automatically removes any subsequential spaces and thus failes to send the file.

example : /dcc send nickname "c:\2 spaces right here.txt"
mirc then replies with the error that it can't find the file
"c:\2 spaces right here.txt" (note the missing extra space between right & here smile

Sad but true, mIRC has this thing with spaces...

or try using $shortfn(c:\there are 2  spaces here.txt)

have you tried capturing the raw ctcp data sent to initiate the dcc send? save and rename the file once it is completed? just an idea..

Yeah, it's the infamous "mIRC can't deal with double spaces" issue. I for one sure wish Khaled would give us a means to escape spaces and other special characters like most all other script languages do.

/set %spaces This Var Has a\ \ double escaped space in it and a \% special character to boot.
