Yes, of course, but that's just a way to program around the 'long constant
string' issue :-)
The same problem arises when defining strings that must be aligned in some
way. For example, while programming in C for a 16x2 LCD display, I can
format my code just as the user will see it [better read with a monospaced
char errmsg = "Unknown error "
"don't do that! ";
That's very useful for catching mis-alignments in the source code.
