I am doing a batch file import and need to clean up and relabel the waves.
The data files are labelled such as SLOT2-6” wafer.TXT and I want to keep only the SLOT2. The are many items so I cannot just select the first five characters.
I am attempting to use the RemoveEnding Command
NewName = removeending(S_Filename,"-6\” wafer.TXT") with the understanding that \" is the escape sequence for the " in the name.
This is not working and returns the original string.
What am I doing wrong?
NewName = removeending(S_Filename,"-6” wafer.TXT")
and that worked but why? How does Igor know the string ends at the 3rd quotation mark and not the second?
