21.4.1 String Read Syntax

The read syntax for strings is an arbitrarily long sequence of characters enclosed in double quotes ("). (7) If you want to insert a double quote character into a string literal, it must be prefixed with a backslash \ character (called an escape character).

The following are examples of string literals:

 
"foo"
"bar plonk"
"Hello World"
"\"Hi\", he said."
