      Description

      To allow the 'script' feature to be uses as an actual 'development feature' rather that simply a "replay the log" feature the addition of a continuation character would be nice.

      Example ...

      Instead of a single line in the file that is several hundred characters long and difficult to edit ... e.g. a complex Roo Entity or Field command ...

      command --parm1 value --parm2 value --parm3 value --parm4 value --parm5 value --parm6 value --parm7 value --parm8 value --parm8 value --parm10 value --parm11 value --parm12 value --parm12 value

      ... the ability to do something like this, at least in my opinion, would be nice and much easier to maintain ...

      command --parm1 value ^
      --parm2 value ^
      --parm3 value ^
      --parm4 value ^
      --parm5 value ^
      --parm6 value ^
      --parm7 value ^
      --parm8 value ^
      --parm8 value ^
      --parm10 value ^
      --parm11 value ^
      --parm12 value ^
      --parm12 value

      I think that is a much more malleable format for humans. All the character is doing is "escaping" the line terminator ... which is the normal command line terminator ... that immediately follows it.
