JavaScript: Tips of the Day



String.raw returns a string where the escapes (\n, \v, \t etc.) are ignored! Backslashes can be an issue since you could end up with something like:
const path = 'C:\Documents\Projects\table.html'
Which would result in:
"C:DocumentsProjects able.html"
With String.raw, it would simply ignore the escape and print:
In this case, the string is Hello\nworld, which gets logged.
