Description

When I make a new dir (F7) for torrents download, like that
"Кулак легенды: Возвращение Чен Чжен / Jing mo fung wan: Chen Zhen (Вэй Кеунг Лау / Wai Keung Lau) [2010 г., боевик, драма, история, DVDRip]"
Windows can auto replace not right symbols into spaces,like that
"Кулак легенды Возвращение Чен Чжен Jing mo fung wan Chen Zhen (Вэй Кеунг Лау Wai Keung Lau) 2010 г., боевик, драма, история, DVDRip"
Can you add that mc, do this thins too, please..

I also think that it's a very bad idea, at least if it is enabled by default.

Replying to gonzo111:

yes, its not good - mc must create dir with name as you enter, but replace '/' with '<space>' is unacceptable

No, it's not - mc creates "Кулак легенды: Возвращение Чен Чжен " directory with " Jing mo fung wan: Chen Zhen (Вэй Кеунг Лау " subdirectory containing one more " Wai Keung Lau) [2010 г., боевик, драма, история, DVDRip]" subdirectory, i.e. exactly what you've asked for.

IMHO it's wrong to do character substitution too, just think about mistyping.

What COULD be done to be consistent with terminal tools is adding [ ] create parents option, which when disabled should simply raise an error when trying to create directory with forbidden character ('/').

...and maybe this error dialog should propose replacing '/' with ' '.
