I am not a new QGIS user, however, I am still confused concerning the quotation marks syntax ('single' vs "double").
I know something about the quotation marks and the way they are applied in Python scripting (i.e. comments, strings etc.).
There are even some related questions:
- Single quotes vs. double quotes in Python [closed]
- Is there any difference between “string” and 'string' in Python? [duplicate]
Nevertheless, I would like to clarify the details regarding the quotation marks ('single' vs "double") in the scope of QGIS.
For instance, if I type something in the Expression dialogue I will have a different output.
"something", it is written as
The Output is
'something', it is shown as
The output is
'something' as a string.
So, my questions are:
- What is the syntax/meaningful difference between quotation marks ('single' vs "double") in QGIS?
- Are there any other circumstances when other types of quotation marks are used in QGIS, for instance, triple quotation marks as in Python?
