# Escaping Characters in Perl

PERLServer Side ProgrammingProgramming Scripts

Perl uses the backslash (\) character to escape any type of character that might interfere with our code. Let's take one example where we want to print double quote and $sign − ## Example Live Demo #!/usr/bin/perl$result = "This is \"number\"";
print "$result\n"; print "\$result\n";

## Output

This will produce the following result −

This is "number"
\$result
