Coded file names
« on: December 27, 2005, 12:08:09 am »
     I'm wondering why/how one goes about encoding file names in their shared stuff. Is there a reason I should do this? How does it work, what's the purpose, and is there a way to decode when searching/browsing for stuff to download?

Thank you.

I assume with "coded" you mean all the file names with weird characters in it?
If so it's very easy: they're simply files in another language, most likely asian. It's just characters your windows can't display without the right language support, that's why it seems garbled :)
