Escape symbol

Backslash ( \ ) is the escape character of Genero BDL.

The Genero BDL compiler treats a backslash ( \ ) as the default escape symbol, and treats the immediately following symbol as a literal, except for special characters such as \r or \t.

To specify anything that includes a literal backslash, enter double ( \\ ) backslashes wherever a single backslash is required. Similarly, use \\\\ to represent a literal double backslash.
