Back slash??? Thread starter Abboud Start date Aug 30, We don't like Ads much either, but they do help cover the costs of running the site. Please consider turning off your ad blocker.
Thank you. The problem with doing that for all of these files is that I have several hundred files containing several thousand tweets, and it's a little impractical. So my question is this: Is there a way in which to load files with forward slashes in their file name? I saw many ways to load files with the search button, but none including how to deal with a forward slash in the name I've tried:. An explanation as to how Python handles forward slashes would be welcome, if anyone cares to teach a naive undergraduate.
Kindall's explanation below: It's necessary for the Carbon layer, which uses the standard Mac filename separators, colons. Slashes have historically been allowed in Mac filenames going back to Mac users also expect to see colons, not slashes, as pathname separators in the GUI or at least they did in , when this behavior was instituted.
I'm assuming you're using a Unix-like OS, and my understanding is that forward slashes aren't allowed in filenames in such systems. Personally I'd rather run a batch rename tool on those files. Slash in a file name is generally a bad idea. Special characters in OSX filename?

Linux is a Unix-like operating system, so it uses the same type of slash. The more interesting question is whether it really matters. Browser and operating system developers seem to realize that users are confused, so they often go out of their way to accept any type of slash possible.
You can usually forget that there are two different types of slashes, but it occasionally does matter. It would be nice if everyone used a consistent separator for directory paths, but Windows has historically been all about backward compatibility — even in the early s.
