I wish the Delphi language supported multi-line strings

The Wiert Corner – Very often, I see people ask for how to embed multi-line strings in a Delphi source file. The short answer is: you can’t. The long answer is: you can’t and if you want you have to hack your way around. The answer should be: just like any of these languages that do support multiline ...

Delphi - always full of surprises!
