Escaping in PowerShell: the back-tick ` is the escape character.

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/03

Somehow I always forget this:

The PowerShell escape character is the backtick “`” character.

Use it for escaping quotes within quotes, or inserting special characters.

Don’t abuse it (see the great debate: do not use it as a line continuation).

Often you can avoid line continuation characters by using splatting, which is one of the “best kept secrets” in PowerShell.
