lasso 8.5 allowing no extension....

Steve Upton

Hi All,

I know I had this working before but due to a site crash, re-setup left this important config out…

How can I set up Lasso 8.5 to accept uploading (and subsequent processing) of files with *no* extension?

It seems I can use .* but doesn’t that mean ALL file types? Seems dangerous…

thanks

Steve Upton

I'm pretty sure you must use .* for no extension.  You could try
"", but I have my doubts.

Regardless, an extension alone does not determine a file type.  
There is a nifty utility on Linux and Mac called "file" that
sniffs the first few bytes of a file and identifies its type.
