removing double extensions

#1 Postby ibiz » Sep 24, 2007 5:30 pm

Many of our clients inadvertantly upload files with double extensions. It seems they have file extensions hidden on their computer so when they add an extension, they are actually adding two.

I noticed that Xupload seems to remove the 2nd extension, but not the "." before it. This is what results:

Orig. file: 3800.jpg.jpg

Uploads successfully as: 3800..jpg
(two dots)

Is there a way to have the script automatically remove the full double extension, including the second "." (e.g., should be 3800.jpg)

Thank you.

Jim

In upload.cgi find this line:

Code: Select all

my ($fn,$ext) = $filename=~/^(.+)\.(.+)$/;

and add this code below

Code: Select all

$fn=~s/\.\./\./g;


this should replace double dot with single.

I added the line you suggested and for some reason I am still getting the double dot:

Original File: 0000.jpg.jpg

and it was uploaded as: 0000..jpg

This is what my script looks like:

my ($fn,$ext) = $filename=~/^(.+)\.(.+)$/;
$fn=~s/\.\./\./g;
$fn=$filename unless $filename=~/\./;


Thanks again for your help.

Oh, then try this:

Code: Select all

$fn=~s/\.//g;
