escape apostrophe in cycling '74 file path


    Jun 21 2013 | 9:12 pm
    Im going round in circles here. Im trying to format the file path to the "C:/Program Files (x86)/Cycling '74/Max 6.1/Cycling '74/" folder, in order to send it to Jython as a exec statement
    Jython wont accept this surrounded by quotes:
    exec X = "C:/Program Files (x86)/Cycling '74/Max 6.1/Cycling '74/"
    So I try to wrap it with apostrophes. Jython wont accept this because there is an apostrophe in the path already
    exec X = 'C:/Program Files (x86)/Cycling '74/Max 6.1/Cycling '74/'
    So Im trying to find a way to escape the apostrophe using a backslash, but regexp wont let me, because backslash is used by regexp for escaping.
    Im hitting a brick wall here and would really appreciate any ideas.
    Cheers

      double-backslash through regexp? does that allow it? some Max formatting requires this.
      Strange that the first version won't work, I thought anything in double quotes would be fine. I don't know Jython though.
