g++ does not find include files


The include files are in directories referred to using backward slashes as this is how they're recognised in Windows. Is there anyway to avoid having to go through every .cpp and every .h file in my project changing backward slashes to forward slashes?

I have lots of cpp files with include lines in the format below:

#include "dir1\dir2\dir3\file.h"

but when I try to compile using g++ it says file does not exist. Does this mean I have to change all the include lines so that they use forward slashes. ie

#include "dir1/dir2/dir3/file.h"

or can I somehow get g++ to recognise what is meant by the backward slashes.
