Detox is a utility designed to clean up filenames. It replaces difficult to work with characters, such as spaces, with standard equivalents. It will also clean up filenames with UTF-8 or Latin-1 (or CP-1252) characters in them.
$ ls Future Crew - Skaven - 2nd Reality.s3m $ detox -v . Scanning: . ./Future Crew - Skaven - 2nd Reality.s3m -> ./Future_Crew-Skaven-2nd_Reality.s3m $ ls Future_Crew-Skaven-2nd_Reality.s3m
The latest release is 1.2.0, available in the download section of the project page. The change log is available here, and the readme is available here.

It was originally a personal project, written a few years ago to clean up the names of MP3s ripped under Windows. It started with simply removing spaces, and grew more complex from there. I've been using it for quite some time, and I'd like to give something of immediate value back to the community. It was originally written under Linux, and it's presently developed under FreeBSD.
Detox is included with the following distributions:
