[SOLVED] QProcess special symbols
Anonymous last edited by
Hello... I have process which execute following command - "cmd /C app.exe --arguments"... It works fine as long as arguments do not contain any special symbols (%&<)... My argument looks like --password "aa<we71%"...
That argument does not work if I don't convert those special symbols like shown in "this ":http://www.robvanderwoude.com/escapechars.php website...
I can change it manually into "aa^<we71%%" and it will work fine... But I want it to be automated... So I would like to know if Qt has any function that would convert string into command line readable text...
@ QString name = "aa<we71%";
name.replace("<", "^<"); // 1.st replace name.replace("%", "%%"); // 2.nd replace name.replace("^", "^^"); // 3rd replace
@I tried with code above but it does not work as supposed... It first replaces < with ^< and new word is "aa^<we71%"... But then in the next 3rd replace it will change ^ into ^^ and that is no longer symbol <...
I hope you understand what I am saying... So if Qt does not have any function that would do that, how can I do such thing? I could probably put each letter of the word into array and convert one by one and then put them together but that is my last option...
AFAIK, there's no such automatic conversion for special characters. So you would probably need e.g. a regexp to do it
