str_get_dq

Returns the double quote (") character as a string.

Available in version 6.1.0 and later.

Prototype

	function str_get_dq (
	)

	return_val [1] :  string

Description

This function returns a one-character string containing the double quote (").

NCL cannot generate a double quote string using normal string assignment. This function gives a quick/direct way to get a double quote string.

The result of str_get_dq() is same as tostring(tochar(34)).
