I struggle a bit with UNC paths in latex.

My paths looks something like


I found this. Which recommends to change \ to /. Thats not really a solution.

I put the path in a verbatim block which work but ignores the text flow. My other 'solution' is to replace every \ with \textbackslash{}

The question I have is: Is there any recommended or best practices way to deal with UNC paths?

  \path{\\server\my folder\folder}

enter image description here

  • Yeah this is exactly what I searched. And now I feeling a bit stupid because path is kinda obvious. – Sir l33tname Aug 28 '14 at 6:50

    @Sirl33tname Glad my guess is correct. I know that feeling as it happens to me too. It's OK. :-) – user11232 Aug 28 '14 at 6:54
