Because my laptop is getting older my ethernet and wireless hardware has failed on me so I’m relagated to downloading the webpages I want to read at the library. I don’t complain, this actually works just fine for me. Firefox though cannot open multiple pages at once:
So I built a script that does so:
#!/bin/bash # firefox to open all .htm, .html files for X in *.htm do firefox "$X" done for Y in *.html do firefox "$Y" done
Only problem is, XP doesn’t write unicode so Firefox will complain that it can’t find the file when it encounters a character it doesn’t understand. Unknown characters in Unicode will map as “ï¿½”. This may not translate well on WordPress, or the Browser, or the OS you’re using so here’s a pic:
For any developers out there, do you have an idea how to write a script to rewrite the filenames so they are Unicode (or remove the un-unicode lettering) without having to manually type in each name?
