is there a possibility to spread a string over multiple lines like in c++ the \ does?
example:
i wanted to spread long command lines like in c++:
string test = "hi \
                    hi \
                    hi \
                    hi";
thats the same as if i would have
string test = "hi hi hi hi";
i dont want to use the + operator. thats a different thing.
thx

Use literal strings. Note that literal strings do not use escaped chars with \.

string test = @"hi
 hi
 hi
 hi";

This will do what you expect.
