I have a macro that adds a backslash to an existing backslash:
args = arg
definition = replace("$arg$", "(\\\\)", "\\\\\\\\")
iseval = 1
This fails when the arg has spaces:
index=perfmon counter=`backslash("\processor time")`
The expanded search string:
(counter=\\processor index=perfmon time)
How do I get:
index=perfmon counter="\\processor time"
Oh please show me my stupidity as I have been banging my head on the desk for hours...
