This article could really use a few examples of WHAT exactly an escape character would look like in various programming languages. I mean, otherwise it could be difficult for the laymen to understand what exactly is meant here.
Would someone add some code samples please? Mzanime 17:50, 9 March 2006 (UTC)
@ in C#
The following ought to be added to this article at some point. Derek farn 16:11, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
The C# language offers a special notation called @-quoting, where an @ symbol is placed before the opening quotation mark of a string literal. Escape sequences in an @-quoted string are not processed, so that (for instance) the backslashes in @"C:\Foo\Bar\Baz\" are interpreted as backslashes and not as escape characters. Similarly, quotation marks may be included in an @-quoted string by doubling them: @"I said, ""Hello there."""

The escape key is part of the MS-Windows UI -- forms use it to replicate clicking the close or cancel button.

"this article" (revision of July 19, 2010 by Jayron32)
The MoS (Wikipedia:Manual of Style (self-references to avoid)#Think about print) explicitly states:
- … so try to use terms such as "this article" as opposed to "this website".
Seems a lot of this article (Escape character) is probably more suited to the Escape sequence article. Perhaps the two could even be merged together; I’m not sure. Vadmium (talk, contribs) 10:12, 8 December 2012 (UTC).
