#478 – Verbatim String Literals Can Span Multiple Lines

A verbatim string literal is one in which no escape sequences are processed.  The string contains exactly the characters entered.  Verbatim strings can also span multiple lines.

            string multilineGuy1 = @"This
is
a
multiline
string with embedded \t escape sequences";


In fact, you can only include a multiline string in your source code if it’s declared as a verbatim string.

            string multilineGuy1 = "Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love";

            string multilineGuy1 = @"Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,";
            Console.WriteLine(multilineGuy1);
