Using Regex.Escape


I got these two lines of code:

        1. text = text.Replace("\", Regex.Escape("\"));
        2. text = text.Replace("'", "\'");

The first line give me a compiling error:
         error CS1010: Newline in constant

Rem out the first line.  Run w/ the debugger the second line did not work, it didnot replace ' with \'

Please advise.

Hi hongjun

    The correct answer for the first line:
          text.Replace("\\", Regex.Escape("\\"));

     Your 2nd line is right.
