    Fixing paths

    I use GetMouleFileName to get my application's path name. The problem is that the directory returned in provided in single slashes, e.g C:\Test\Demo1\Debug\demo1.exe

    How can I convert the single to 2 slashes to the directory can be used from C++?
    I tried a run through the string using a for statement and I found all the slashes, char 92 in ASCII. ANy ideas how to take advantage of that? Thank you

    No need!

    You only need the double slashes in your actual source code (as the \ is the C laguages escape char)

    The return from GetMouleFileName is fine for passing to other apis or displaying

    One solution assuming you wanted to concatenate a '\' after every single '\' is via a string object's concatenate function. You could always use C-type functions but then you would need to reorganized your array structure.
