Subject: DESC field containing embedded double-quotes?

EPICS Guruen:

I am generating EPICS .db files from a perl script, and would like to be able to generate records which have DESC fields containing the '"' 'double-quote' character. Is this possible? What is the syntax? I have tried editing an otherwise working database file, and have not been able to create one that passes the database loader. Have tried using combinations of multiple d-quotes and escaping them with various numbers of '\' 'backslash' characters.

I am using R3.14.8.2 on Scientific Linux 4.

Thanks.
