    MvIMPORT problem

    Hey folks --

    I just found out -- the hard way :^( -- that MvIMPORT strips backslash
    characters. I have a home-made preprocessor for my Miva scripts, and it
    turns out that if my script includes double quotes preceded by backslashes,
    MvIMPORT removes the backslashes, causing the processed script to have
    syntax errors.

    Is there a way to disable this? The only work-arounds that I can think of
    are (1) use two backslashes in the input file, or (2) use MvCALL instead of
    MvIMPORT. Any other ideas?

    Thanks --
