I'm doing some file input/output work here in C and received this warning during compilation (GCC). My research indicates that this error is in response to white space or a character cancellation function or something like that. I'm not 100% sure exactly what it means. I was hoping some of you could help! My code works fine, but the following warning does appear.
Here's my code (excluding a bunch of comments at the bottom of the file).
warning: unknown escape sequence: '\040'
I believe the error I received has to do with either the '\n' I used when appending text to my file, or something to do with there being a space in the file name itself.
file = fopen("Running\ Practice.c", "a");
Any information (in lamen's terms if possible), would be greatly appreciated!
