Problem with an Array

Problem with an Array

Problem with an Array

I have a perl program that uploads data from the users computer.
On the confirm upload page I want to feed back the information to the user of which file they just uploaded.

I am successful at doing this except the output does not have any "\" in the path name.

I use
@array=split (/\\/$filepath/);

my output look like this.

c: directory file

no "\" exist in the output.

I know there is a simple solution please help?

RE: Problem with an Array

You broke $filepath on the backslash and then printed out the result.  So if you had $filepath="c:\directory" then @array would = ("c:","directory");  When you print @array, it prints "c:"."directory" = "c:directory".  If you want it to print "c:\directory" then print $filepath.
