    Description

      We currently have a lot of similar code for handling path strings that are from other operating systems (Windows). The current method is to do a string replace

      str_replace('\\', '/', $path);
      

      This code is used 56 times through the code, though a large amount of those are in third party files.
      Use the following for a complete list:
      grep -r "str_replace('\\\\\\\\', '/'"
      git grep will show you areas only in core moodle.

      It would be preferable if this was centralised in the one location.
