I am not submitting a bug report in case this is a feature...

I was trying to hack a file full of DOS file names, with '\' seperators
and though I would do the usual: ":%s/\\/\//g" to chage them all to '/'.

Nothing happened... pattern not found. Under SunOS it gets worse... even
with the 'g' on the end, it only changed the first occurance.

Is this a feature or bug ?
