Question on strings, paths and double backslashes in GAUSS
Can any one explain the following code? I debugged to here and have no idea what should I do next.
opath = parapath $+ "\\mhrun" $+ mhrun; chkdir = chk_dir(opath); opara = opath $+ "\\pa"; create fhpara = ^opara with para, ndgp_ + nphi_+ nadd_, 8;
What does does double backslash mean here?
The double back-slash is used for Window’s path separators inside of quotes. This is because a single-backslash is an escape sequence. For example \n means new-line, \t means tab-space, etc.
$+ operator combines strings, so, you could make the path C:\gauss14\myproject like this:
opath = "C:\\gauss14"; parapath = "\\myproject"; fullpath = opath $+ parapath;
