Recursively remove invalid characters from path names.
RECURSIVELY REMOVE INVALID CHARS IN PATHS
A simple script to find and remove invalid characters in file and directory names. Inspired by the need to workaround limitations of Egnyte's unsupported character types.
The chars are currently hardcoded into the script, but like the list of servers to run on, this should really be added to a config/lst file.
The aforementioned list should reside in $HOME/.ELC.lst. The format is one line per server and lines beginning with # will be ignored.
There is a really convoluted bash version and a nice simple Python version and a W.I.P Powershell version...
run.sh is a bash wrapper script for mounting a list of servers to run the python script on.
