can netrw show current directory with backslashes?
- I often use gvim on Windows. In order to quickly point a Windows
explorer window to the current working directory of gvim, I yank the
full path at to top of netrw into the "+" registry (a trick I learned
in this forum) and past it into the address field of the Windows
When I use this trick to open up files in older apps, however, they
choke on the forward slash. So I have to past the path into a new vim
window and replace all back-slashes by forward slashes. Or in the new
vim window, I create the command
cygpath -aw /The/Full/Path
I've got the vim options set up so that cygwin's bash is properly
invoked most of the time.
A 3rd way to get the path converted to backslashes is to open up a new
temporary Windows explorer window and past it into the address field
and press return. It converts it, I copy the path again and banish
the Windows explorer window.
All of these methods are really round about. The most direct way
would be for a netrw option to allow users to select the use of
backslash for display of paths. Would such a thing exist?
