Back quote strings


Back quotes are not used at all for strings in the C language. The back quote character, `, also known as a backtick or grave accent, may be used in ScriptEase in place of double or single quotes to specify strings. However, strings that are delimited by back quotes do not translate escape sequences. For example, the following two lines describe the same file name:


"c:\\autoexec.bat"  // traditional C method, which is also

                    // valid in ScriptEase

`c:\autoexec.bat`   // alternative ScriptEase method
