Tags: literal , string
The beginners' page has a more thorough explanation of Jelly syntax and tokenization.
Terminate a dictionary-compressed string.
Rather than being evaluated literally, the characters are converted into a base-250 integer and converted to a string using Jelly's decompression function,
sss. You can convert strings to their compressed form using the online tool, which also explains the compression/decompression algorithm. For example,
“3ḅaė;œ» evaluates to
Hello, World! and
“½ċṭ6 Ỵ“Ñ'ȯ6JƓ3» evaluates to
["caird coinheringaahing", "Coding Challenges"].
