    backlash problems ("\\")

    golem2
      Hi, I am having problems with string manipulation when the string is Windows path, such as:
      "\\Users\Me\Desktop\photos\photo4.jpg"

      What I want to do is to replace all the "\" with ":" (I am writing to file using 3ed party - Zinc and need to convert Windows path to mac and back)

      I need to do something like:
      oldstring = "\\Users\Me\Desktop\photos\photo4.jpg"
      replaceChar = ":"
      convert(oldstring, replaceChar)

      Problem is that flash reads oldstring -> "\\Users\Me\Desktop\photos\photo4.jpg"
      as:
      \Users\e\esktop\hotos\hoto4.jpg

      Help !
