There's (IMO) not a lot of reason to terminate a string because end of line
characters are encountered...


Allow any character other than a " in quoted strings. The " character
itself needs to be escaped \" if included in " to a closing ". All regular
escape handling can be done, but other literal characters like '\t' or
'\n' that
are in the source between quotes should be included as that literal
