Verbatim String ending with backslash

Oct 13, 2011 at 8:53 AM

I did not manage to create a (non-literal) verbatim string in a semantic action that ends with a backslash:

%start start
%%
start : { Console.WriteLine("abc\\"); }
;

This always results in a "Error: Literal string terminated by EOL" with gppg 1.4.5. Using any number of backslashes ("abc\", "abc\\\", etc.) doesn't change anything. However, @"abc\" works as expected.

Didn't I get the syntax right or is this a bug?

Thanks!

Hii Martin.  Yes it was a bug, in ScanAction.y.  Fixed in version 1.4.6
