Printing a string containing a curly brace.

Printing a string containing a curly brace.

The curly brace "{}" is a reserved character in SilkTest Classic GUI.  If attempting to print a string that contains a curly brace, you must place a double quote directly before the brace for it to be accepted.  See example below:-

[-] testcase PrintBrace() appstate none
    [ ] Print("Using a "{curly brace} in a string")

If you do not use a double quote like above, a syntax error will be returned when compiling.
