in thread Problem w/ single-quoted strings

It said that to get a backslash to print as part of a single-quoted string you need to use two and what I showed proved that to be false.
I don't believe that you have proven the statement false. When you used two, it interpolated it as one (as your quote described) and it came out as \n. Basically, it only interpolates \' and //, so \n is not going to become a newline. I apologize for any lack of clarity. nmcfarl provides a nice example below, and Stevie-O's #4 (below) lays it out nicely.
