OPTION ESCAPE


Specifies that string literals should be processed for C-like escape sequences by default

Syntax:
Option Escape

Description:
Option Escape is a statement that causes string literals to be processed for C-like escape sequences by default. Normally, escape sequences have no effect in string literals unless the string is prefixed with the ! operator (Escaped String Literal). This default remains in effect for the rest of the module in which Option Escape is used, and can be overridden by prefixing string literals with the $ operator (Non-Escaped String Literal).

See Literals in the Programmer's Guide to learn more about escape sequences.

Examples:
'' Compile with the "-lang fblite" compiler switch

#lang "fblite"

Option Escape

Print "Warning \a\t The path is:\r\n c:\\Freebasic\\Examples"
Print $"This string doesn't have expanded escape sequences: \r\n\t"

#include "crt.bi"

Dim As Integer a = 2, b = 3
printf("%d * %d = %d\r\n", a, b, a * b)
