Hi everyone --
During my experiment, I'm using FileCopy to move files around between the local computer and shared network drives.
So I might want something that looks like this:
FileCopy "c:\path\file.txt", "s:\path\file.txt"
One challenge is that I seem to need to use "//" to specify the path when I'm working with shared network drives. So it ends up looking like:
FileCopy "c:\path\file.txt", "s:\\path\\file.txt"
This works just fine. The problem is that everything is very dynamic and paths are specified with variables that all originate with CurDir$, which contains a bunch of instances of "\".
My question is this: How can I use Ebasic commands to replace all instances of "\" within a given variable with "\\"? I've started playing around with Mid$ and I think I could work it out, but it seems like there's got to be an easier way.
Thanks in advance.
