How to find "\"

Mar 17, 2013 at 5:00 PM
Thank you for FNR.EXE.
My problem is changing "\" to "/".
Here is the command line:
"C:\WINDOWS\fnr.exe" --cl --dir "D:\Music\Playlists" --fileMask "*RNAS.m3u"  --excludeFileMask "*.dll, *.exe" --includeSubDirectories --find "\" --replace "/"
I don't know enough to fix this, but I think it is the backslash in the find switch that escapes the quotes? The executed batch file finds no matches. I've tried many variations with no luck.
How can I tell FNR to find "\"?

I figured it out.
"C:\WINDOWS\fnr.exe" --cl --dir "D:\Music\Playlists" --fileMask "*NAS*.m3u"  --excludeFileMask "*.dll, *.exe" --includeSubDirectories --find "\\" --replace "/"
Note the double backslash.

I note that FNR works without doubling the backslash so FNR works in the GUI independently from windows. I am still not sure why one needs two backslashes and why another quote is not required, but life's too short to try to come with an answer.

Thanks for FNR!
