Here is a cool feature. I dismissed format() when I first saw it as
catering to C programmers, but so far it seems to be cleaner and better
than the C format. For some reason, this generates what you want:
put format("She said, \"I do.\"")
Think that is weird? This does, too:
put format("She said, \"I" & "\"")
So this works:
put format( format( "She said, \\\"I" & "\\\"" ) )
The first parameter may be a variable and other expressions, but the
language seems to shift to a special mode for literals. Or something.
I'm not sure what is going on.
What will this create?
put format( line 1 of "She said, \"I do.\"\nThat was 18 years ago.")

Much cooler than my format() tip!
