in reply to Accessing Windows Path from Perl script

Firstly you need to check out perldoc: quotelike operators and see the difference between "$string\\path" and '$string\\path'.

Also windows paths are notoriously awkward, so maybe a path name handler module would be useful, rather than hard coding them? Check out Win32 and File::Basename among others...

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on!

Update: Fixed links...

Just a something something...
