String Recipes

Introduction

A string is a sequence of characters. A string is written by enclosing the characters with a doublequote ("). Some special characters must be preceded by a backslash, these include doublequote and backslash. The technique of marking special characters are called escaping and backslash it self is called an escape character.

Examples of literal strings:

   "Hello world"
   "This string has a \" in it"
   "This character \\ is a slash"
