hi
i am using python on WinXP..i have a string 'folder ' that i want to
join to a set of imagefile names to create complete qualified names so
that i can create objects out of them

folder='F:/brown/code/python/fgrp1'
filenms=['amber1.jpg', 'amber3.jpg', 'amy1.jpg', 'amy2.jpg']
filenameslist=[]
for x in filenms:
	myfile=join(folder,x)
	filenameslist.append(myfile)

now when i print the filenameslist  i find that it looks like

['F:/brown/code/python/fgrp1\\amber1.jpg',
'F:/brown/code/python/fgrp1\\amber3.jpg', 'F:/brown/code/python/fgrp1\
\amy1.jpg', 'F:/brown/code/python/fgrp1\\amy2.jpg']

is there some problem with the way i use join? why do i get \\ infront
of  the basename?
i would prefer it like 'F:/brown/code/python/fgrp1/basename.jpg',

can anyone pls help
gordon
