Topic "Question Mark as a Special Character in winscp-ftp:// urls"

Author Message


Hey, I recently edited the wiki to include the question mark as a special character in the list of common special characters. It was reverted due to it not actually being a special character.

I wanted to make sure that I'm not misunderstanding, because when I introduce a question mark character into a winscp-ftp:// url in the username portion, and the url also has the password in it, then winscp will prompt for credentials unless I encode the character like a special one. Am I missing something?

Thank you for your time, and for the extremely useful software that I use hundreds of times weekly at my workplace.

Can you please post an example. I'm not able to reproduce this. How to use use the URL? Command-line or scripting? Please post an example of a use as well.
