Depends on the underlying operating system.

In WinXP it is not case sensitive.


Nitpick: Depends on the underlying file system.

One thing people easily forget is double quotes being automatically added by Windows, in some cases.
If your program gets the file name via command line or drag & drop, or maybe via the common dialog, likely it will be bounded with "" that you need to stripe before using fopen(). Double quotes, however, are only added when the file name would be unclear, without.

It's just a guess, without any more details I can't think of anything else ^^

Not the problem, but you sent me in the right direction. Many thanks.

The problem is that I am failing to strip off the last " in parsing my file.

If I have a line such as:

#include "myfile.as" // include the file we need

I want myfile.as

Currently I am using this:

newScript = newScript.substr(newScript.find_first_of("\"")+1,newScript.find_last_of("\"")-1);

where newScript would hold #include "myfile.as" // include the file we need

This is failing to strip off the last ". Is there an obvious reason why?

The second argument of string::substr() is the length of the substring not the position of the end of the substring.
