Forward Slashes (vs Back Slashes)

Forward Slashes (vs Back Slashes)

1.2.1 allowed the use of forward or backward slashes ( / \ ) interchangeably.
I thought that be be very convenient.
(May not have been common knowledge, but worked, & was convenient. Suppose somewhere it could have broken something, but...)

> tails c: /tmp/

Now I've got to hit that other key:

> tails c: \tmp\

---

(somewhere I believe I saw something about a change in backslash, but haven't found it yet ...)

Anyhow, I am used to

> c: /tmp/

finding directories named /tmp/.

So:

c:/tmp/
c:/123/tmp/ ...
(eh, excuse the /, the actually listing would display as \, but I find it much easier to go with /)

the slashes (whichever way you want them) anchoring a part of the path.

Now

> c: \tmp\

finds

c:\tmp\
& also
c:\LeechTMP\

with nothing highlighted on the LeechTMP line?

forward or backward slashes ( / \ ) interchangeably.
I will add an option to enable this..
> c: \tmp\

finds

c:\tmp\
& also
c:\LeechTMP\
Currently, \tmp\ looks for tmp anywhere in the path.

This is a bug, I have fixed the issue for the next release of "Everything".
