Since we denote strings with double quotes (
"), we need to do something special to save a string with double quotes:
String question = "Which is your \"favorite\" number?";
A backslash escapes a
" character. "Escaping" means treating the
" as a normal character, rather than as part of the programming language.
What if we want to include include a backslash in our string? By using another backslash to anti-escape the first! For example:
String sentence = "A backslash looks like this: \\."; sentence; // "A backslash looks like this: \."
