        Very simple problem if you look at it in a syntax color-coded editor. 
I just loaded the file in vi under Linux and the coloring showed it 
right off...

Mismatched " marker... \" is an escape character, the tokens are:
"""
\"
""      <= it sees two ", so the opening triple " is still open!
