Subject RE: How to get paths with forward slashes

```Hi Brian,

Yes, log4j does work with double backslashes. The only problem is that I
can not get ant to put them in there (using filtersets). Ant specifies
paths with single backslash for DOS. However, I am now using
<pathconvert> to specify paths with single forward slashes and that
works.

Naresh,

This may be so obvious that you've already tried it, but have you
tried using double backslashes?  In other words:

<param name="File" value="C:\\MyProject\\log\\test.log"/>

I don't have log4j configured at the moment so I couldn't test this,
but it has worked for me when using the <exec> task.
