Sweet, simple and fustrating ...
I need Poser to write a Python script file with code in it that will be read by another appication (Marvelous Designer).
In the code I give a few pathnames of files I want MD to read.
I happily construct the path names of the file with 'os.path.join()' and get a string with single backslashes.
To use the neames in a code they need of course to be with double backslashes.
I use str.replace('//', '////') which should do the trick so I can write the string to file, but no avail.
I tried not to convert the text and write binary, but no avail.
Fustrated to bitter end I changed filenames so the names do not begin with a character that together with the backslash could from an escape sequence, but AAAARGH!!!
Any solutions anyone?

the replace method does not change the .str but returns a copy with the replacements made.
Dumbass me had not read the docs with enough attention.
