[New-bugs-announce] [issue27045] Forward slashes in Windows paths

Ed Doxtator report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Ed Doxtator:

In the documentation for pyvenv (https://docs.python.org/dev/library/venv.html), there is a table that shows by platform the command required to activate a virtual environment by OS.  For Windows, the values are:

Platform        Shell       Command to activate virtual environment
Windows         cmd.exe     C:> <venv>/Scripts/activate.bat
  	        PowerShell  PS C:> <venv>/Scripts/Activate.ps1

The commands are incorrect-- they contain forward slashes and should be back slashes.
