To disallow the special meaning of characters, precede them with the backslash character (\). For example, an accent mark can be included in a quoted parameter by preceding it with a backslash:
here is a \'quoted\' string
evaluates to:
here is a 'quoted' string
To enter a real backslash, use two backslashes.
To continue a macro definition to another line, terminate the line with a backslash. For example:
where~e.name~ = "$n"}
You must enter two blanks before the backslash that continues the macro definition to the second line, and you must not enter a blank after that backslash. In other words, to continue the macro definition to the next line, enter four keystrokes: blank, blank, backslash, RETURN.
