FileExists with trailing quotation mark

Reported by: therks@… Owned by: Jon
Milestone: 3.3.15.5 Component: AutoIt
Version: 3.3.15.4 Severity: None
Keywords: FileExists Cc:

Description

Mentioned here first:
https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/206186-fileexists-with-trailing-quote/

For some reason FileExists is treating paths that end with a quote mark (or multiple marks) as valid.

; Assuming File.txt exists:
ConsoleWrite(FileExists('File.txt'))   ; Returns 1
ConsoleWrite(FileExists('"File.txt"')) ; Returns 0
ConsoleWrite(FileExists('"File.txt'))  ; Returns 0
ConsoleWrite(FileExists('File.txt"'))  ; Returns 1
ConsoleWrite(FileExists('File.txt""')) ; Returns 1

The following functions all behave similarly (ignoring the trailing quotation marks and returning valid results):
FileGetAttrib, FileGetLongName, FileGetShortName, FileGetSize, FileGetTime

FileGetVersion behaves expectedly, returning "0.0.0.0"

ConsoleWrite(FileExists(@AutoItExe & '""""""') & @LF)        ; Returns 1
ConsoleWrite(FileGetLongName(@AutoItExe & '""""""') & @LF)   ; Returns C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Beta\AutoIt3.exe""""""
ConsoleWrite(FileGetShortName(@AutoItExe & '""""""') & @LF)  ; Returns C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Beta\AutoIt3.exe""""""
ConsoleWrite(FileGetAttrib(@AutoItExe & '""""""') & @LF)     ; Returns A
ConsoleWrite(FileGetSize(@AutoItExe & '""""""') & @LF)       ; Returns 946784
ConsoleWrite(FileGetTime(@AutoItExe & '""""""', 0, 1) & @LF) ; Returns 20210611084604

ConsoleWrite(FileGetVersion(@AutoItExe & '""""""') & @LF)    ; Returns 0.0.0.0 (correct!)
