Tried fiddling a bit to see if I could repro on my machine...
This first one executes correctly (prints "char 7 is \"), but the syntax-highlighter thinks that the "then" keyword and the print statement's closing parenthesis are contained inside of the strings on their lines:
This one fails to execute:
It seems like under "certain conditions" in the pipeline, the second backslash is still getting viewed as if it was an escape-character, and that's somehow "half-escaping" the ending quote mark. Very strange that the highlighter and the actual code parser are getting different results like that!
Snippet if you wanna try other variations:
x="hello \\" for i=1,#x do char=sub(x,i,i) if char=="\\" then print("char "..i.." is \\") end end
