In JMP, the preferred file path format is the Portable Operating System Interface (POSIX), or UNIX, format with forward slashes (/) as separators. This means that you do not have to identify the current operating system in scripts run on both Windows and Macintosh. However, each host still accepts its native format for compatibility.
You can a convert file path format from Windows to POSIX (and vice versa) using Convert File Path(). Converting from a POSIX to a Windows path might be useful when you need to output a path to a file or to another application. The syntax is:
Convert File Path (path, <absolute|relative>, <POSIX|windows>, <base(path)>);
Convert File Path( "c:/users/smith", windows);
You can substitute a path variable (such as $HOME) for the path inside quotes.
