in reply to Interpolation in Single-quotes?

It's not interpolating anything. The normal way to get your string delimiter inside of your string is to prefix it with the \ character. So, for single quoted strings, you have two escape sequences that are understood: \\ and \'. Everything else is literal.

[marto]: so I have to work Saturday, which is good and bad. Bad in the sense that I have to be hear early :( Good in that I am here only as support for another client project, so I get to spend the day working on my personal 'ToDo' list, without the kids :P
[Corion]: marto: Ooof - but yes, being there as only second level support or third level support is good and if you have enough things that you can work on, it won't be a wasted (if paid) day
[marto]: I've opted for a day off later on, rather than pay. I only have to do about 45 mins work for the client, but do need to hang around
[Corion]: marto: Even better ;)
[marto]: and I'm off next week1
