Quotes are explained in the reference manual, section 2.1, apparently
not very successfully judging from the questions I get.

        To get this             You type this

            "                       \"
            \                       \\

but these things only work inside "...".  So the way to print quoted
strings in source code listings is like this (for example)

        puts("hello\n");        puts("\"hello\\n\"");

In other words, you replace the opening " by "\", you replace the
closing quote by \"", and any \ inside you replace by \\.
