  • It causes the escape sequences not to be processed.

    E.g. two strings below are the same.

    string something = @"c:\first\second";
    string other = "c:\\first\\second";

  • In addition to Ferovac answer I would say that the @ allow you to made a string value on multiple lines (very useful for some big contains)


    string query = @" <Where>


    bla bla bla </Eq>

    </Where> ";
