Bug or wrong usage of @static in 0.7RC2?

The following code (part of ModiaMath.jl) fails on 0.7:

julia> @static if VERSION < v"0.7.0-DEV.2005"
             print(" \# ")
             print(" # ")
ERROR: syntax: invalid escape sequence

Any idea?

This is not valid


If you want to print the original, just use raw string


It seems that in v0.6, \# just means #, didn’t figure out why this become invalid in v0.7.


Just note a typo above. The r"\#" creates a regex expression. For a raw string, you need to enter raw"\#".
