Compiler Error CS1039

Unterminated string literal

The compiler detected an ill-formed string literal.

The following sample generates CS1039. To resolve the error, add the terminating quotation mark.

// CS1039.cs
public class MyClass
{
    public static void Main()
    {
        string b = @"hello, world;   // CS1039
    }
}
