Alas, I appreciate the sentiment, but believe me - I've tried the obvious.
I'm a professional programmer with 100,000's of lines of code under my
belt. None of the obvious escape sequences worked. EasyLanguage does have
a string constant called NewLine which equals "\r\n", but as far as I've
been able to tell, there is no comparable string constant for ascii decimal
34, the double-quote.
At this point I'm thinking I'll have to write a .DLL just to create a string
with a " in it. I could call it once at the beginning of my program and set
a variable to it. If anyone has ever solved this problem, I'm dieing to
hear how. By the sounds of it, I'm not the only one.

Common programming problem. The solution in most programming languages
is a magic prefix-character: '\'. So, to print the following line:
This is a "double quote" : "
I would use the following string:
"This is a \"double quote\" : \""
This magic character is used to insert many different characters that
seem impossible to insert (") or have no visual representation
(<Enter>). You get used to it eventually and no one's come up with a
good substitute system. If the above string works, then the following
should also work:
<Enter>(call a 'newline') : \n (sometimes \r\n)
<Tab> : \t
\ : \\

Fellow EL Coders,
Does anyone know how to get a double-quote character, ", into a
using EasyLanguage? I need to write one into a file for Excel .CSV
I looked for, and didn't find, an escape character, a char(34) funtion,
Any help is appreciated.
