Are you referring to using the file functions with symbols that you aren't allowed to use in a Windows Path? You can't. They aren't allowed.

And what Richard said holds true for any language if the Windows API is involved.

Do you mean "symbols not allowed in a file name" or "symbols not allowed in C#"?

Considering any file name symbols would be in a string, I don't know how it could run into issues with C# as a language.

I suppose - the only symbols that you'd have a problem with in C# would be \ and " which are not allowed in files either.

You clearly have never heard of escape codes.

Not true, I was merely asking if the OP was having trouble with C#.

Chalk that one up to English failing as a language then. It sounded to me as if you didn't understand escape codes.
