RE: [cvsnt] Unix Slashes on Temp DrivesThe DOS/Windows command line utilities use slash as the option character; therefore file name arguments cannot contain slashes. The Windows API, however, treats forward slashes and backslashes identically. So CreateDirectory("\\cvstemp\\test1", 0); and CreateDirectory("/cvstemp/test1", 0); both work. -Torsten ----- Original Message ----- From: Clipper, Chris To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Sent: Thursday, October 17, 2002 4:10 PM Subject: RE: [cvsnt] Unix Slashes on Temp Drives When at the command prompt I get the following: C:\cvstemp>mkdir \cvstemp\test1 C:\cvstemp>mkdir /cvstemp/test1 The syntax of the command is incorrect. C:\cvstemp>mkdir \cvstemp/test1 The syntax of the command is incorrect. Win2K doesn't seem to like the forward slashes. -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...
