Quoted string = Quote ( String ) Quoted string = Quote$ ( String )

Quotes a string by using the Gambas string syntax.

It transforms a string into something than can be evaluated to the same string by the Gambas interpreter. In other words:

PRINT Eval(Quote(AnyString))

is an exact equivalent of

PRINT AnyString


PRINT "This is not a \"quoted\"\nmulti-line string."
Print "===="
PRINT Quote("This is a \"quoted\"\nmulti-line string.")
This is not a "quoted"
multi-line string.
"This is a \"quoted\"\nmulti-line string."
