    resolved [RESOLVED] Unterminated string literal?

    Hello, everyone.

    Got one that's making me scratch my head, a lot.

    I keep getting an 'unterminated string literal' error message.
    Code:
    incJS += '<script type="text/javascript" src="' + thisRoot + 'scripts/application/FP.js"></script>';
    According to FF Error Console, it exists right at the end of the </script> tag.

    I'm not seeing it. What am I missing?

    Thanks,
    |||||

    What's the line before and after, particularly before?

    Thanks for the response, Declan, but I finally figured it out; although I don't remember this ever being a problem, before.

    The string was being terminated early because I was not escaping forward slashes with a backslash.

    Incorrect:
    incJS += '<script type="text/javascript" src="' + thisRoot + 'scripts/application/FP.js"></script>';
    Correct:
    incJS += '<script type="text\/javascript" src="' + thisRoot + 'scripts\/application\/FP.js"><\/script>';

    Sigh

    It's because of the script closing tag inside the string. When you don't escape or split it like
    '<scr'+'ipt>' it's seen as the close tag of your script.

    Dangit. I should have fingered that one out. Didn't even think of it. Thanks for the info.
