      Description

      On puppet/master

      I have the following manifest:

      file { "C:\Users\moses\Desktop\file_utf8_title_€" :
        ensure => file,
        mode => "0644",
        content => "This is the file content.
      ",
      }
      
      

      when I apply this on windows (as this is a windows path), I get the following:

      C:\Users\moses\development\puppet(master)> be puppet apply C:\Users\moses\Desktop\foo_win.pp
      Warning: Unrecognized escape sequence '\U' at C:/Users/moses/Desktop/foo_win.pp:1:50
      Warning: Unrecognized escape sequence '\m' at C:/Users/moses/Desktop/foo_win.pp:1:50
      Warning: Unrecognized escape sequence '\D' at C:/Users/moses/Desktop/foo_win.pp:1:50
      Warning: Unrecognized escape sequence '\f' at C:/Users/moses/Desktop/foo_win.pp:1:50
      Notice: Compiled catalog for win-ghb4gdkiluo.localdomain in environment production in 0.04 seconds
      Notice: Applied catalog in 0.03 seconds
      

      These warnings are invalid since its just a file path, not escape sequences..
