Hello, I wanted to bring up a problem that I had mentioned a while ago
[1] but to which I've found not satisfactory solution, whatsoever, yet.
How does Escaping actually work in Groff? Is what I said in [1] true and
there is in fact no consistent method and rather, quotes cannot be
escaped like one would do in C? I refer you to [1] in which I described
my problem. Thank you in advance.


I went to Google and searched "groff escape quotes", and found the
answer in the groff(7) man page:

The escaped double quote \" introduces a comment. Otherwise, it is not special. Groff provides a printable representation with the \(dq escape sequence.
