Encoding Backslash in AppleScript inside Bash


Recommended Posts

I have a need to have this snippet in my bash workflow:


osascript <<EOT
set myString to "This\\ is\\ string"
return myString
It breaks with error:

[ERROR: alfred.workflow.action.script] Code 1: 22:23: syntax error: Expected “"” but found unknown token. (-2741)



I would like the output string to look like "This\ is\ string".
