Steve,

Came across this in a topic involving Gail and a person trying to run a backup and failing.

What this person has run into is, if they key in "\ \ networkdrive" (remove the spaces) the forum chops it off to \etworkdrive

I even tried wrapping it in a [code=plain] (I dropped the " to avoid a code block) and it does the same thing. If you preview post, it shows chopped off AND the text editor shows it chopped off.

Good luck...
Jason

\n = either CR or LF, the new line character on unix. Anything other than n after the slash works fine. Took me a while to realise he meant a \n was vanishing, not that \\ was getting converted to \

I'm using Chrome.


On two occasions I have been asked, "Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?" ... I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.

You need to escape things. I suspect this is an interpretation of the two slashes and the "n"

Just 1 \ and an n will do it. How do you escape things? I tried a few random things and didn't work. Can't the software do that?
