[Tutor] Raw string

When I get file path from DirDialog, I get in a (path) variable.
Sometimes that string (path) contains special escape sequences, such as \x,
\r and so on.


When I try to open that file (whose name contains escape sequences) it
doesn't work.

I know that raw string marker 'r' in front of string leaves char '\' as
character and not as start of escape sequences,
but I can not apply it to a variable name which contains file path.

Is there a function with same effect as raw string marker, as my problem
must be solved differently?

Can you help me?

Kind regards,
