16:11:42 ~$ ruby x

there are "double" and 'single'

And even #{does not} harm.
"\nthere are \"double\" and 'single'\nquotes!\nAnd even \#{does not} harm.\n"
16:11:44 ~$ cat -n x
     1  str=%q{
     2  there are "double" and 'single'
     3  quotes!
     4  And even #{does not} harm.

     6  puts str
     7  p str
16:11:46 ~$
