in reply to windows path problem

Neither did you show actual Perl code, nor did you describe how it did not work for you. This will perform the substitution you requested:
use strict; use warnings; my $path = 'c:\abc\xyz'; $path =~ s/\\/\\\\/g; print $path; __END__ c:\\abc\\xyz

The double quotes interpolate. If you use strict and warnings, you will get a warning message.

On a side note, when posting, just include code within code tags, not all of your text.
