|Summary||0003979: Far can't find files with "[", "]" in names|
|Description||Let's we have a file named "eee [www].yyy"|
Search for "eee [www].yyy" returns nothing
Search for "eee [www].*" returns nothing
Search for "eee [www]*" returns nothing
Search for "eee [www*" returns this file
Search for "*www*" returns this file
From Far 1.70 up to 3.0 build 6060
|Square brackets are special characters in Far file masks, and it's documented in Help. To find them verbatim, you need to enclose them in brackets. E.g. this mask finds the file: `eee [www].yyy`|
|I don't want to add extra symbols. I just want to find my files!|
This was discussed in detail more than 15 years ago (and documented long prior to that), and I see no sign it is going to change in any foreseeable future.
I wish you good luck with your demands and your stance.
