Back quote

ScriptEase provides the back quote "`", also known as the back-tick or grave accent, as an alternative quote character to indicate that escape sequences are not to be translated. Any special characters represented with a backslash followed by a letter, such as "\n", cannot be used in back tick strings.


For example, the following lines show different ways to describe a single file name:


"c:\\autoexec.bat" // traditional C method

'c:\\autoexec.bat' // traditional C method

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


Back quote strings are not supported in most versions of JavaScript. So if you are planning to port your script to some other JavaScript interpreter, you should not use them.
