Special character in path

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm new to AutoIt so please forgive me if i post a question already answered elsewhere.

In the process of writing a little script i did the following:

$var = @WorkingDir
; to get the directory i am currently in
Run("cmd")
Send ($var)
; just to see what it does

As a matter of fact i am in

D:\tests\!-web\

This is a valide path yet the '!' is not put into $var which means that it becomes

D:\tests\-web
thus not providing the real path.

Can anyone point me to a soluton to this (other than naming my directory different?)

thanks in advance

-georg

Just to get in good habit, check out the functions you are using in the help file before posting about them. In this case you might want to see what the "raw" flag in Send() does.

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :graduated:

You code works perfectly for me - I get the full path including the ! sent to the command prompt. :(

Indeed! :-)

Thank you, the '1' in Send function does the thing.
