You mean _dos/windows_ file path separator ? It was indeed a stupid
choice _from microsoft_ to choose the by then well established escape
char (the backslash) as a file path separator. But hopefully, Python
handles it gracefully: you can either use raw strings (which I stronly
advise you learn about instead of whining) or just the traditional unix
one (forward slash) instead.

Totally clueless, as usual... Why don't you just READ THAT FUCKING MANUAL ?
