in reply to Perl5 Internal Representation of string variable

A string literal is a piece of code that instructs Perl how to build the string in memory. The escapes and interpolations are processed (at compile-time and run-time respectively) to produce a string that contains neither.

For example, the string literal "abc\n" produces a four character string when evaluated.
