# inlined "here" strings

If yyou remove the requirement to have the here "key" to be followed by a newline, then you allow the possibility in inline here strings.

Consider some Scheme code that populates the registry:


(registry-set-key #<<"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\foo\bar..." #<<!!some abitrary text that does not have two bangs!!)

as opposed to the more tedious:

(registry-set-key #<<"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
\foo\bar...

" #<<!!
some abitrary text that does not have two bangs
!!
)
