What's the difference between the two?  Is it the
way "\n" is treated?

$REBOOT = 'reboot ""\n'
$REBOOT = "reboot \"\"\n"

first one will print whatever is inside of the '...'

the \n is treated literaly and printed.

the second is inside "..." and everything will be interperated.

so, the \" renders a " and the \n renders a newline character.


so, ex 1. is literal, ex2 is interperated.
