I think you are using the period as a join operator.  The join operator is a comma.

Re: String question

obrienj
I'm not trying to join anything. I want to put Transcript show: 'abc'. (including the period) into string x.

A simpler example: x := 'abc.'. puts abc. into x, so why doesn't x := ''abc'.' put 'abc.' into x (the single quotes are part of the string)?

Re: String question

I see.

You are looking to find the escape sequence.

I tried   x := ‘Transcript show: \’abc\’.’.

But that doesn’t work.

I’m only a beginner myself.  I wonder where the others are in this group?


Sincerely,

Joseph.

you have to double the quotes:

x := 'Transcript show: ''abc''.'
