In the middle of page 40 is this sentence:

The sequence `n in a string, either single-quoted or double-quoted, will be replaced by a newline character.

I don't think this is correct; it is also contradicted by the first sentence on the next page:

Note that escape sequence processing, like variable expansion, is only done in double-quoted strings.

Thanks for a great book!
