Dear Sirs.

I am a novis at Mathematica and I have run in to some 
problem. I would like to read a file into Mathematica which 
look like:{{"A/B/C/D"},...} were A etc are names of 

Now, Mathematica always interpret the "/" as division and 
tries to evaluate this as an expression and do not read the
string. My question is therefore, is there a (simple)
way around this problem?

Greatful if you can help me out with this one.
