I have been encountering a rather frustrating issue with my PHP script. It seems that I am getting a parsing error whenever my string variable contains a drive path. Let me provide some context and give you an example.
So, I am currently working on a project where I need to manipulate file paths in my PHP code. I have a string variable called `$filePath` that stores the path to a specific directory on my local machine. Here's an example of what it looks like:
$filePath = "C:\Users\John\Documents\project\files\";
Now, whenever I try to use this variable in my code, I end up getting a parsing error. It's really puzzling me because I've used string variables in PHP before without any issues. I suspect it has something to do with the backslashes or the fact that it's a drive path.
I have tried experimenting with single quotes, double quotes, and even using forward slashes instead of backslashes, but the problem persists. I have double-checked the path and it's definitely correct.
I would really appreciate it if someone could shed some light on this issue and help me understand what might be causing this parsing error. Is there a specific way to handle drive paths in PHP, or am I missing something obvious?
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.
