File Path/Name Problem

Alternatively, you can use a backslash (\) to force the OS X  
operating system to treat the next character as a character only.   
I've forgotten what this is called, but it also allows you to deal  
with paths that have spaces in them (like /Applications/My App/ can  
be handled by using /Applications/My\ App/).  In other words, if you  
know a / is NOT a directory indicator, change it to \/ .
