# Logstash problem with \

Hi every one,
I want to put the values inside a path in some field. I want to split the path so i can take every value inside it but i can't split with \ because is a special character.

I tried to replace \ with / but it didn't work

``````gsub => ["path","[\\]","/"]
``````

When I use rubydebug the path looks like this:

C:\Users\U1\Desktop\a\ec.txt

But when I go to see the data in kibana it looks like this:

C:\Users\U1\Desktop\a\ec.txt

There is a way to take the value inside the path (I don't like to use Grok filter because I have to analize a path (more complicated then the exemple before) where the position of value is fondamental. I can't specify the position with the Grok filter exept only patterns, rigth?)
