standard_conforming_strings

standard_conforming_strings

Reports whether ordinary string literals ('...') treat backslashes literally, as specified in the SQL standard. The value is currently always off, indicating that backslashes are treated as escapes. It is planned that this will change to on in a future release when string literal syntax changes to meet the standard. Applications may check this parameter to determine how string literals will be processed. The presence of this parameter can also be taken as an indication that the escape string syntax (E'...') is supported.
