I am trying to compile a c program in linux using cc -o
it is coming up with bad escape character on multiple line
here in one example of code
sprintf(chkval -> shpdate, "%02d\/%02d\/%04d", MM,DD,YY);
it doesn't like %02d\/%02d\/%04d
it does like what's it between the quotes
does anyone know if it is a bad ecape character?
