    fprintf problem

    hi

    i want my program to write the following line in a file:

    Spooler_drucker=\\A145023\OkiML310

    i tried the trigraph ??/ but it is not working, too.

    the program compiles with the compiler-warning "unknown escape sequence". after running the exe the program writes the file without \ and \\ when i try
    fprintf(data_ptr,"Spooler_drucker=\\A145023\OkiML3 20\n");
    and with the trigraphs when i try
    fprintf(data_ptr,"Spooler_drucker=??/??/A145023??/OkiML320\n");

    all other lines are working fine - just this damn \\ thing *sigh*

    Did you try " \\A145023\\OkiML320"?

    If you want to write the "\\" you will have to use "\\\\" so it doesn't think it's an escape sequence. That should work.
