Single and double quotes
When referring to quoting values such as strings, double quotes should be assumed. In edge cases where a string needs to enclose a double quote - for instance a complex command line string - paired single quotes may also be used.
Within quoted text a \ escapes a character and \\ allows a literal \ to be used. Besides escaping non-pairing quotes, \n indicates a new line character and \t a tab.
