Title: slashes / backslashes
Post by: sadman on February 18, 2011, 11:49:22 PM
hello,

any reason why texas instruments dats contain backslashes as directory separators and the rest uses slashes?

also these backslashes seem to be typos

Commodore/C64/Demos/[D64]/Commodore C64 - Demos - [D64] (TOSEC-v2010-12-30_CM).dat:   rom ( name "Raze\s Musicpack (19xx)(Success).d64" size 174848 crc e2ff4b22 md5 d64137f2f29abe3df73539098b175310 )
Commodore/C64/Demos/[D64]/Commodore C64 - Demos - [D64] (TOSEC-v2010-12-30_CM).dat:   rom ( name "Vic Reeve\s Theme (19xx)(Dominators)[h Demobase C64].d64" size 174848 crc 7277a2d0 md5 26285ab29acc3e8d362853a9524cd973 )

No idea since Diabol uses cmp to create dats just as the other guys.

In the C64 sets i bet there was something like ' instead of "\", maybe Duncan can explain better how that happened (it can also be related with some error trying to replace / script something and escaping ' with \'?)

Thanks for pointing them out!

edit: noticed that Cassiel already reported that here (http://www.tosecdev.org/index.php/forum/index.php?topic=261.0) and in his case they are actually "`" instead of "\". Strange, eh?

'name' and 'description' use grave (in error), 'rom' uses \ (in error):

e.g.
game (
   name "Raze`s Musicpack (19xx)(Success)"
   description "Raze`s Musicpack (19xx)(Success)"
   rom ( name "Raze\s Musicpack (19xx)(Success).d64" size 174848 crc e2ff4b22 md5 d64137f2f29abe3df73539098b175310 )

sadman - thanks for pointing these out, always much appreciated....   :)
