backslash is a special key, its use means take the next key as its ascii value, NOT its assigned function..
for example. in C++.. here is a hello world program.
cout << "Hello World";
but what if you wanted cout to print the character [ " ]
cout << " She said "You Smell !" ";
COMPILE error. !!!!
so you would use
cout << " She said \"You Smell !\" ";
the same thing is used to put spaces in file names (in command line)
