+ <longdescription>
+ A quasiquoter for raw string literals - that is, string literals that don't
+ recognise the standard escape sequences (such as @\'\\n\'@). Basically, they
+ make your code more readable by freeing you from the responsibility to
+ escape backslashes. They are useful when working with regular expressions,
+ DOS/Windows paths and markup languages (such as XML).
+
+ See @examples/RawRegex.hs@ for a usage example.
