I take this to mean you want a script which performs the %-hex-hex
encodings.  This simple perl command prints the %-hex-hex encodings for
all characters in standard input.

perl -pe 's/./"%".sprintf("%2.2x",ord($&))/ge'

Typical usage might be:

$ echo "filename" | perl -pe 's/./"%".sprintf("%2.2x",ord($&))/ge'

; To UNSUBSCRIBE:  Send a mail message to address@hidden
;                  with "unsubscribe lynx-dev" (without the
;                  quotation marks) on a line by itself.
