Subject Escaping unicode reference in slashy string
Date Mon, 08 Feb 2016 22:17:09 GMT
Someone was trying to point out difficulties with various string values 
in slashy strings.  I was able to refute most of his arguments, but he 
pointed out a curious issue involving unicode sequences.

If you have the following:
def var = /c:\uabc.txt/

This will fail to compile, as "\uabc." is not a valid unicode sequence.

So, the obvious thing to try is this:
def var = /c:\\uabc.txt/

That would fix it, right?  Well, sort of.  It doesn't get a compile 
error.  I expected it to produce "c:\uabc.txt", but instead it produced 

What are relatively simple workarounds for this?
