JScript escape characters

Table of contents
No headers

Use the following escape characters in JScript scripts. Any escape sequence not included in this table simply codes for the character that follows the backslash in the escape sequence. For example, "\a" is interpreted as "a".

Since the backslash itself represents the start of an escape sequence, you cannot directly type one in your script.

If you want to include a backslash, you must type two sequential characters (\\).

For example:

The log file path is C:\\Program Files\\Syslogd\\Logs\\SyslogCatchAll.txt

The single quote and double quote escape sequences can be used to include quotes in string literals.

For example:

The caption reads, \"This is a test message from \'Kiwi SyslogGen\'.\"
