Yeah, from what I have read, MySQL operates differently than many others. Don't quote me on it, but what I have read seems to indicate that '' is the SQL standard vs. \', and MySQL goes its own way here. Of course, MySQL is probably used quite a bit by Sublime Text users, so I get the need to make it work for that. Your same select in SQL Server (using single quotes vs. double quotes, as double quotes are reserved for column names) gives me: C:\mofo\\
So yeah, there is a difference. No big deal I suppose; I created a work around. But thought it was worth mentioning what I found.
