We are just setting up our new wiki and when entering script code that has backslashes we found that things were going amiss.

For example if we add the following using raw edit:

line 1\
line 2\
line 3
line 4 \
line 5 \
line 6

It displays properly:

line 1\
line 2\
line 3

line 4 \
line 5 \
line 6

But if we then use "edit" instead of "raw edit" the backslashes are interpreted as line continuations and we end up with

line 1 line 2 line 3

line 4 line 5 line 6

Backslashes should be not interpreted inside a verbatim or a pre.



you should use the sticky tag to prevent the WYSIWYG editor to change it.

-- TWiki:Main.OlivierRaginel - 21 Oct 2008

If you mean

line 1  \
line 2  \
line 3

the backslashes are removed if "edit" is used, after a save and then "raw edit" I see

line 1   line 2   line 3


-- TWiki:Main.StanSwiercz - 22 Oct 2008

Sorry but the sticky's and verbatim were eaten I have placed a sticky tag followed by a verbatim tag then the 3 lines and then a close verbatim tag and close sticky tag.
