I am sitting here writing some code, in C# for my next video and for some reason I cannot seem to remember the C# Escape Sequences for "New Line" and "Double Quotes." They are easy enough to find on line, but since I've just found them again, I am posting this entry for anyone who might be "banging their heads on the keyboard" like I was, trying to remember them.
C# Escape Sequence List
\' - single quote, needed for character literals
\" - double quote, needed for string literals
\\ - backslash
\0 - Unicode character 0
\a - Alert (character 7)
\b - Backspace (character 8)
\f - Form feed (character 12)
\n - New line (character 10)
\r - Carriage return (character 13)
\t - Horizontal tab (character 9)
\v - Vertical quote (character 11)
\uxxxx - Unicode escape sequence for character with hex value xxxx
\xn[n][n][n] - Unicode escape sequence for character with hex value nnnn (variable length version of \uxxxx)
\Uxxxxxxxx - Unicode escape sequence for character with hex value xxxxxxxx (for generating surrogates)
You know, I used to be a Visual Basic (1.0-6.0 and VB.NET) Developer, doing all of my code in the VB Syntax until about 3 years ago. Sometimes, I think about switching back to doing all of my code samples in VB for my own sanity. I know that many of you will disagree, but I really liked the syntax much better.
Let the Anti-VB flame-war begin!
