> Ok thanks! Btw why double quotes " instead of single ' ?
Either one will do...there's not much difference. I try to use
double-quotes most of the time, just so when I include an
apostrophe in-line (which I do more often than I include a
double-quote in-line), I don't have to think.
string1a = "John's dog"
string1b = 'John\'s dog'
string2a = "She said \"hello\""
string2b = 'She said "hello"'
string3a = 'She said "John\'s nice" in a letter'
string3b = "She said \"John's nice\" in a letter'
string3c = """She said "John's nice" in a letter"""
string3d = '''She said "John's nice" in a letter'''
My usual aim is for clarity, so I tend to go with the versions
that have the fewest backslashes in them.
