#1 Powershell string continuation

Posted by: clanman | Date: 2019-09-08 11:56 | IP: IP Logged

In Powershell you can have the following code:

$StraightAddr = 'Google LLC|1600 Amphitheatre Parkway|Mountain View, CA 94043|USA'

You can also have the same address in a string put together like this:

$FormattedAddr = 'Google LLC
1600 Amphitheatre Parkway
Mountain View, CA 94043
USA'

In the case of $FormattedAddr PSPad does not highlight

1600 Amphitheatre Parkway
Mountain View, CA 94043
USA

as a string. In fact it starts a new string after the "'" at the end of USA.

I know one could argue this is bad programming however since this is valid in the language is it possible for PSPad to recognise it for strings starting and ending with '' and "" that span multiple lines?
