The Line Continuation Character

If your Lyris command will not fit on one line, you can use the line continuation character to tell Lyris that the next line in your message should be treated as part of this line. The line continuation character is the ampersand character.

For example, a simple subscribe request, such as:

    subscribe jazztalk Robert Smith

can be written with the line continuation character as:

    subscribe jazztalk &
    Robert Smith

or even as:

    subscribe &
    jazztalk &
    Robert &

Note: the slash character ("\") can be used as a line continuation character, instead of using the ampersand. For example:

    subscribe \
    jazztalk \
    Robert \
