Challenge: Escaping Literal Quotes in Strings

Link to the challenge:

Hey @Maxwell14,

The syntax /(forward slash) is not the same as \(backslash). The \(backslash) is the syntax used for escaping characters, while the /(forward slash) just acts like a normal text inside a string.

You have a forward slash / instead of a back slash \ .

@JeremyLT @ I think you switched the slashes around (forward slash /, backslash \)


Escape notation:

Damn, thanks for catching that. Fixed.
