Quoted Text - $The$Rest$

Many commands require quoted text, this format of quoted text is only ever used for the last parameter of some commands.

This is very similar in function to the "Quoted Text - $Text$" method except that no more parameters are expected after the current one. All "Quoted Text - $Text$" examples are valid.

Everything is the same as for "Quoted Text - $Text$" except:

  1. The quote character can actually appear within the quoted text.
  2. If the value is unquoted the rest of the line (stripped of leading & trailing whitespace) is used.
  3. Nothing follows the text.

The rexx function GetQuotedRest() can be used in your own code to read quotes values such as this.


The following are examples of valid quoted strings:
