View Full Version : directory seperation... back/forward slashes...

11-11-2001, 02:19 AM
i use \\ [escape sequence] to get a forward slash in a hardcode string... but then i see conventions as '/' in someone else's code... and i've also seen that when DJGPP reports a missing include header file... can you guys shed some light? thank you...

\ - donotes windows file sys

\\ - denotes windows file sys in code (escape char)

/ - denotes url or *nix file sys

Well in my experince anyway

have you tried using / as directory seperator
in stead of \\
it works in my old turbo c++ IDE havent tried it yet on vc++
and its sure to work with djgpp as it is a gnu derivative and gnu is *nix based
