Dodo doc > Syntax > Literal Values > Text String Literals
Text string literals are enclosed in double quotes. They can be prefixed by an encoding specifier which tells the compiler which encoding to use for storing the text string. Some encoding specifiers are:
x" UTF-16LE little endian, e.g. Intel x86
X" UTF-16BE big endian, e.g. Sparc
Text string literals do not define an escape character. Special characters should be escaped outside the literal.
Multi-line string literals open each line with a double quote. Each line of the multi-line literal ends with the last character of the line or three double quotes. The last line of the multi-line literal ends with a double quote.
