Character constants vs String literals in C#

CsharpProgrammingServer Side Programming

Character constants

Character literals are enclosed in single quotes. For example, 'x' and can be stored in a simple variable of char type. A character literal can be a plain character (such as 'x'), an escape sequence (such as '\t'), or a universal character (such as '\u02C0').

Certain characters in C# are preceded by a backslash. They have special meaning and they are used to represent like newline (
) or tab (\t).

String literals

String literals or constants are enclosed in double quotes "" or with @"". A string contains characters that are similar to character literals: plain characters, escape sequences, and universal characters.
