I am having some trouble with reading text files.  I am using

ifstream inputfile("text.txt");

to read from a file called text.txt which has a bunch of file paths in it.
The only problem is that the string has the directories using the backslash
instead of the forward slash.  My program will not read the backward slash.
Everything works fine when the forward slash is used.  Is there function
that will search through a string and change "\" to "/".  If not, I could
just use a function that replaces one character with another.  Thanks.

Tom
