    Path Copy problem


    Any users of the handy tool Path Copy around?

    In Win 10 File Explorer if I right click the file
    C:\Users\terry\Dropbox\CD-DVD Inserts\Basics\1500x1180Quartered-2.pspimage
    and use Path Copy > Internet Path, it delivers
    file://terry-2016/Users/terry/Dropbox/CD-DVD%20Inserts/Basics
    which correctly opens that file on right clicking from my text editor.

    Note that it has converted the Space character to %20. From this table
    Ascii Table - ASCII character codes and html, octal, hex and decimal chart conversion
    I see '20' is the ASCII hex equivalent.

    But if the file or folder contains a plus sign like this example
    C:\Users\terry\Dropbox\Excel+VBA (Sundry)\CommonDataTypes.jpg
    then Path Copy > Internet Path makes no similar conversion, but delivers
    file://terry-2016/Users/terry/Dropbox/Excel+VBA%20(Sundry)/CommonDataTypes.jpg
    which fails to open.

    So I replaced the '+' in that link with '%2B' giving
    file://terry-2016/Users/terry/Dropbox/Excel%2BVBA%20(Sundry)/CommonDataTypes.jpg

    Yet that too fails to open.

    Can anyone suggest a simple fix please?

    (I appreciate that it was unwise of me a decade or three ago to include plus signs in naming files/folders , although File Explorer has nevertheless always cheerfully opened them.)

    :)

  2. Add a path to $PATH?

    what exactly do you need to decipher about that path line? also, what are you installing? perhaps i can help.

  3. Add a path to $PATH?

    Yeah, I think you're right. I think the purpose of the echo command was to check if ~/bin was in the $PATH file. My problem is that I can't decipher the output and I don't know how to add ~/bin to the $PATH file.

    Just for clarification, the snippet of instructions I gave is just a few steps in the installation process. Nothing is actually supposed to be installed with those steps.

    Thanks for the reply.
