Subject Path question
Date Thu, 03 Oct 2002 13:27:24 GMT
Hi all

I have a property called "buildDir" setup as follows:

<property name="buildDir" value="${basedir}/${BuildNumber}"/>

And I also have a property "InstallShieldComponentsDir"

<property name="InstallShieldComponentsDir"

Now, I'm calling a batch file, which in turn calls a program with takes the
Path stored in "InstallShieldComponentsDir"

My problem is that "InstallShieldComponentsDir" has the following as an
actual value:


But the program I'm calling doesn't like the forward-slash - it want's
Backslashes, ie.:


Is there some way I can search and replace the \ with a / in the property ?
