Silly question but I can't seem to find the answer online. I'm
submitting a search phrase in a scraper and I would like that to be in
quotation marks. Because the sterm="****" is already in quotation
marks in the code as:

sterm = "United States"


, I would have to do ""******"" and that generates an error. How does
one do this?
many thanks in advance and apologies for posting such basic questions!

The error I'm getting is the following.

$ ruby article_parse_27feb2010.rb
article_parse_27feb2010.rb:53: syntax error, unexpected tCONSTANT,
expecting $end
  sterm = " "Double Espresso with Whipped Cream" "
