compile error 1.5 (string method)

I have written following code to convert backslash to forwardslash.
if(filePathPrefix.indexOf("\\") > -1)
      filePathPrefix = filePathPrefix.replace("\\", "/");

This code works fine in 1.4 but gives a compile time error in 1.5
The type Comparable is not generic; it cannot be parameterized with arguments <String>
Please tell me how to resolve this

To be more efficient all round, as well as to solve the problem, you can do
filePathPrefix = filePathPrefix.replace('\\', '/');

I'm assuming you know that you can use File.separator to get the proper character for your plaform.  That said, you can always use a forward slash ("/") since it works on all platforms, including Windows.  To make sure you have all forward slashes, you can use:

path = replace(path,"\","/","all);path = replace(path,"\","/","all);

It's actually exactly the other way around. The version of replace you were using was introduced in 1.5
