Betreff: Bug#314249: less should filter non-printable (raw) characters of
the filename
Datum: Wed, 15 Jun 2005 14:08:31 +0200

Package: less
Version: 382-2
Severity: normal

"less" does nice things concerning non-printable (raw) characters in
the file contents, but when such characters appear in the filename,
they are just sent to the terminal. For instance, try

  touch ab`tput bold`cd

and look at this file with "less". One can see at the bottom:

abcd (END)
  ^^^^^^^^ in bold

"less" should have displayed the escape sequence in a special way.
I suggest something similar to "ls":
