Escape the double quotes inside the string by putting a backslash directly in front of them.

Use a slash before the quotes you want to be output:


OK, sorry, just kidding, I realize 3 people have already said that.

Just for interest sake, you can also do:

printf("%cabc%c", '"', '"'); // using quote characters


printf("%cabc%c", 0x22, 0x22); // using ASCII codes for the quote character
