Save Failed: unexpected character: '\'

If you have an error in your code.  Let's say something

$strRET .= sprintf(\"this is a test %s", $mystr);

You recieve the Error Message like the above.  If you
then exit the interface, you will not be allowed back
in Eclipse at all.

It is a rather interesting error.  I understand you
should do this bad of coding, but I was doing a search
and replace.  You gotta give me some break.

I couldn't reproduce this error in my current development 
What do you mean exactly by "exiting the interface"?
Could you look into the eclipe/workspace/.metadata/.log if 
there is an exception trace?

Hi there,
well I had the same problem several times. Since I use the
swiss-german character set I use quite a lot of foreign
letters like ü (ü) and others. 

I guess Scott meat closing eclipse with "exit the
interface". I did that too and couldn't restart the whole
program. I found a workaround, so one doesn't have  to
reinstall the IDE:
go into the plugins folder of your (!) installed plugins.
then into the org.eclipse.ui.workbench folder and open
workbench.xml . I figured that all the statements between
<ediotrs> and </editors> are the open editors. I just
deleted all that, and I was able to start eclipse again.
this might help some to get back to work.
nice day
ps the exception is thorwn by the phpparser

What I mean is that if you exit Eclipse, then try to open it
again, you get the error I mentioned.

I'll try it with the latest to see if this is still a problem.
