Java-what if char is: '

    If I want to work with a character literal, and it is the apostrophe, how do I do this?

    For example:

    Code (Text):

       \\do something
       \\do something else

    Now, Word.charAt(0)==''' isnt allowed. In fact netbeans wont even let me type it. How do I overcome this?

    Thanks in advance

    I would try '\''.

    But I can be wrong.
