Line Continuation
There are no special line-continuation rules for EQUEL/C. You can break an EQUEL statement between words and continue it on any number of subsequent lines. An exception to this rule is that you cannot continue a statement between two words that are reserved when they appear together, such as declare cursor. For a list of double keywords, see the QUEL Reference Guide. Start each continuation line with ## characters. You can put blank lines between continuation lines.
If you want to continue a character-string constant across two lines, end the first line with a backslash character (\), and continue the string at the beginning of the next line. In this case, do not place ## characters at the beginning of the continuation lines.
For examples of string continuation, see String Literals.
