How do i access a file(filePath) that contains spaces, with MEL? I'm on windows and wish to use the system command.

Any help appreciated,
:-)

its pretty straight forward... you have to put quotes around your filepath. Additionally, you have to delimit each quote and backslash with another backslash. This tells the MEL parset to ignore the character directly after the slash. Hope this helps!

system("\"C:\\Path To File\\file.exe\"");

That sure helps.

Thanks a lot!
