# /// -- delineate a string with slashes

This method for entering a string involves no escape characters, so it can be used for easily inserting large chunks of text into a string without treating the characters \ and " specially. A series of more than 3 slashes can be represented before the end of the string by doubling all but the last two, and a series of 1 or more slashes can be represented at the end of the string by doubling each of them; this allows an arbitrary string to be represented.
