Perl framework for windows-prob in makefile
Message ID:
I'm trying to get Perl framework installed on windows.

But the problem is in one of the makefiles...
don't know if this is the right place to ask this question, but could not find any info anywhere else! :(

in a makefile the char "\" means line continuation, 
but if i have a macro  in the Makefile and i want to assign a value of "\" how do i do it?

i tried these :

DIRSEP = "\"
DIRSEP = '\'

but all these don't seem to work!

is there any way to let know that the "\"that follows is NOT for line continuation?
