String Literals Continuing on Next Lines

This section describes string literals continuing on the next lines.

An escape sequence is needed to allow us continue a single string literal on the next line of the source code:

If \ is followed by +, ("\+"), all white spaces characters, including line breaks, that follows this escape sequence are ignored.

Examples of "string" literals with escape sequences for Unicode characters:

write("Hello \+
   world!"); 

write(
"   The old lady pulled her spectacles down and looked over them \+
about the room; then she put them up and looked out under them. \+ 
She seldom or never looked through them for so small a thing as \+
a boy; they were her state pair, the pride of her heart, and \+
were built for “style,” not service—she could have seen through \+
a pair of stove-lids just as well. She looked perplexed for a \+
moment, and then said, not fiercely, but still loud enough for \+
the furniture to hear:
   
   “Well, I lay if I get hold of you I’ll—”"
);
