Hi Thierry,

The quick answer is no.  You can find more information about this topic


The longer answer is that there are some workarounds that can be
implemented using the ASCII value of the character.

In practice, however, I would recommend against using any reserved
characters in file names unless there's a strong business need.  One
example of this might be a web development company that has a strong
business need for including "@" characters in names.

Is it good practice to have filenames containing the # sign in the
depot, for instance:


perforce-user mailing list  -  perforce-user at perforce.com
