The need for other escape chars (http://lexikos.github.io/v2/docs/misc/EscapeChar.htm) seems clear to me, but I don't understand the need to escape a semicolon. Perhaps there's a scenario in which it would be ambiguous whether the semicolon is part of the string or an indication of a comment, but I'm having a hard time thinking of such a scenario myself.
Currently, this throws a "missing close-quote" error:
Code: Select all
OutputDebug("String with ; semicolon")
