Escape Character

Posted by Anjan Bacchu on November 29, 2000 at 9:41 PM

Hi All!,

I have a java program (below). I have divided a Long String
into two lines and use the backslash as an escape character.
This works fine in C and C++ but seems to be giving a problem
in java. I consulted my colleagues but none seem to know the
answer. I hate giving up on problems (ultimately).

Can somebody help ?

P.S : I have attached the Compiler Error Message as a comment below the program source.

Thanks and regards,

import java.lang.String;

public class Test
public static final void main(String [] args)
String strTest = "First Line \

g:\temp\ Invalid escape character.
String strTest = "First Line \
1 error
