> Added support for Java like raw string literals
> -----------------------------------------------
>                 Key: GROOVY-8564
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GROOVY-8564
>             Project: Groovy
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 3.0.0-alpha-3
>            Reporter: paolo di tommaso
>            Assignee: Daniel Sun
>            Priority: Major
> Upcoming version of Java will include a new syntax for raw string literals using back tick character as string delimiter. For example: 
> {noformat}
>      String s = `Doesn't have a \n newline character in it`;
>      String ss = `a multi-
>          line-string`;
>      String sss = ``a string with a single tick (`) character in it``;
>      String ssss = `a string with two ticks (``) in it`;
>      String sssss = `````a string literal with gratuitously many ticks
> in its delimiter`````;{noformat}
> You can read more at [this thread|http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/amber-spec-experts/2018-March/000446.html] and the [official proposal page|http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/326].
> The main difference compared to the Groovy multi-line string literals is that raw string literals do not require to escape special characters, such as `\`, `\n`, etc. The string is assigned to the variable exactly how is typed. This makes it very useful for Groovy based DSL.
