About character replacing for preset locations

Post by hotwatermorning » Fri Aug 30, 2019 10:40 am

Hi,

The VST3 SDK document says that the characters which are in a preset location path should be replaced by "_" if match with "\\*?/:<>|\".

I suppose that the pattern should be "\\*?/:<>|" or "\\*?/:<>|\"".
Which are correct? or am I misunderstanding?

Thanks.

- $COMPANY and $PLUGIN-NAME folder names contain only allowed characters for file naming (replace characters "\\*?/:.<>|\"\t\n\r" by "_")

this means the following characters have to be replaced _:

Code: Select all

Thanks YVan.

Great, I understand well.

BTW, it seems that some characters of the list are escaped unexpectedly on the document page.
It should be fixed in future update.

Sincerely,
hotwatermorning
