Adding files to a Zip handler when file names have punctuation

Adding files to a Zip handler when file names have punctuation

  
Hi,

Here's a problem related to punctuation in some languages.

I'm iteratively and successfully adding several files to a zip handler. The added file names have several punctuated characters like 'ç' or 'ã'

Here's the thing: When I open the zip file (with windows base zip utility), the files that have punctuated characters don't appear. I can see them with 7-zip for example, where they appear as "sometext??.doc". Still, I have to manually rename them in order to be able open them. 

What can I do to be able to add these files (with punctuated characters), to the zip file?

Thanks, Hugo
Hi Hugo,

Well, it might be the case that the Zip extension isn't really supporting filenames with punctuation, and that causes the error. My suggestion will be either to edit or create an extension that uses a different ZIP handler - one that supports the punctuation - or simply rename the files before storing them, to remove all special characters.

Would these be valid alternatives for your case?
