Back-Quote Strings in Siebel eScript
Siebel eScript provides the back quote "`", also known as the back-tick or grave accent, as an alternative quote character to indicate that escape sequences are not to be translated. Special characters represented by a backslash followed by a letter, such as
\n, cannot be used in back-quote strings.
For example, the following lines show different ways to describe a single file name:
"c:\\autoexec.bat" // traditional C method
'c:\\autoexec.bat' // traditional C method
`c:\autoexec.bat' // alternative Siebel eScript method
