Javascript - fopen with a finename containing comma

hcdev asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hello all,

I am using the fopen() method in JavaScript to open a file. This works fine except if the file name contains a comma. It works for all other special characters I have tested.

Sample file name: “test,test.txt”

I have tried to duplicate the comma like: fopen(“test,,test.txt,”wt”), but it still does not work. Do any of you know a workaround for this issue?

Thanks for any help in advance!
