esp8266 stray '\' in code
Mar 14th, 2021 at 10:38pm
Using esp8266 Nodemcu.  using EEPROM library.
When I try to compile, I get the following:

DustCollectorTimerV2.ino: 78:1: error: stray '\' in program
   int eeprom_run_time = EEPROM.read(0)

Compiling the same code in the Arduino IDE does not get this error.

in eeprom.cpp the debug statements all have'\' in them like:
DEBUGV("EEPROMClass::read error, address %d > %d or %d < 0\n", address, _size, address);

Thanks for the report.

Can you please attach the build output with the Show Build Properties, and Verbose settings enabled (as shown at the top of this page).

If you can also email or attach the combined DustCollectorTimerV2.CPP file from the build directory so we can analyse this issue further?
