I have a pretty large patch that stores settings in a bunch of tables and uses textfile and l2s (from zexy) objects to load and save presets. Loading is working fine, but the l2s in the save function has started adding a backslash to the names of settings. Does anyone know why this would be the case and how to stop it? I built this patch a few years back, and have been revising it to make it functional as an abstraction, but even loading the stable version I saved before I started the revision now has the backslash added when I use the save function, which completely breaks it. I know this wasn't the case before since I was able to save a number of presets using the subpatch when I first built the instrument a few years ago, and those presets still load fine.
I've attached a picture of the subpatch. Output from the print objects I added look like this:
d: list reverbBypass 0
e: symbol reverbBypass\ 0
ef: symbol reverbBypass\ 0
f: add reverbBypass\ 0
c: symbol reverbBypass
b: symbol reverbBypass
and the saved file looks like this for that line: reverbBypass\ 0;
I also tried just building a little l2s thing without all of the file saving apparatus and I also get the backslash there. See the second picture, in which clicking on the bang gives this:
postl2s: symbol testing\ this\ motherfucker
prel2s: list testing this motherfucker
The l2s object's help file says its default delimiter is a space, which is how it worked fine for me in the past. But now I get this backslash in there. I've tried setting new delimiters but I can't figure out how to set it to be a space. Other delimiters like a . or a zero character delimiter work fine like the help file shows.
Any ideas on how to get this backslash to stop showing up?
