"unknown type of string?"

RUBY’s complaining about a string I want to write to a file.
The script line looks like this:

file_contents << “%%Blank page for Asura.\n%%Page:
#{newtotalpages.to_i}\nshowpage\n”

and, RUBY’s complaint looks like this:

E:/PageCounts/pagecounter.rb:42: unknown type of %string
file_contents << “%%Blank page for
Asura.\n%%Page: #{newtotalpages.to_i}\nshowpage\n”
^
I’ve used this same line in other scripts successfully. Can someone
explain to me what the problem is here? I need the percen signs
literally in there.

Thanks,
Peter

Are you missing a closing double quote on an earlier line?

Uh, yeh. Actually, an extra double quote, not a missing one. Thanks,
Dave.
