Enable support for dollarstrings


Source position: sqldb.pp line 747

published property TSQLScript.UseDollarString;


UseDollarString enables support for so-called "DollarString" delimiters for string literals. This means that the normal string literal delimiter (') is enhanced with any sring appearing in the DollarStrings property.

Setting UseDollarString to true incurs a speed penalty, so it is better not to enable it unless it is really necessary.

This is needed for instance for PostGreSQL, where stored procedure code blocks are enclosed in "$$" signs, and are treated as a string literal.
