Subject RE: using properties files
Date Wed, 03 Oct 2001 18:01:39 GMT
If I had this:

mypath=c:\program files\some thing\hello

it wouldn't work...

I needed to escape the slashes and all works fine...

i.e. mypath=c:\\program files\\some thing\\hello

Thank you!

I think you can just do it like that -- works for me anyway. Does it not
work for you?
