External open: colon in filename

U.N. 9 years ago updated by Duncan Mac-Vicar Prett 9 years ago 1

External opening of a file (i.e. from file browser), if the filename or path contains a colon (:), does not work.
 sublime_text lab\:\ 1.txt

 sublime_text "lab: 1.txt"

both open an empty buffer, named "lab". I guess the part after ":" is interpreted as a line number to go to

Seeing the same here. The openSUSE Build Service checkouts projects separating namespaces with colons:

osc co home:dmacvicar

cd home:dmacvicar
// modify package
EDITOR=sublime_text osc ci

opens a buffer (IIRC) named :home...
