Subject Re: Java raw string literals
Date Sat, 24 Feb 2018 11:03:16 GMT
The proposal mention double back-ticks for a string containing a back-tick,
eg

``can`t``   // a string containing 'c', 'a', 'n', '`' and 't'


See http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/8196004


Also they are collecting users feedback, have a look at this link
