Since Arma 3 v1.64 this command will correctly escape all " inside a string:
// Before the fix: hint str "string "" string"; // "string " string" <- invalid string call compile str "string "" string"; // ERROR
// After the fix: hint str "string "" string"; // "string "" string" <- valid string call compile str "string "" string"; // OK
Groups:
Strings

Syntax

Syntax:
str value
Parameters:
value: Anything
Return Value:
String

Examples

Example 1:
_s = str (5 + 2); // The value of _s is the string "7"
Example 2:
a = []; ac = 0; while {ac < 5} do { ac = count a; a set [ac, format ["Index %1", ac]]; }; hintSilent str a; // hints all of ["Index 0","Index 1","Index 2","Index 3","Index 4"] including brackets, quotes and commas

When applied to a unit, this returns the variable name that was assigned to the unit in the editor. For example, if you have created a playable unit with the name 'thePlayer' then you can use 'str player' to return "thePlayer";

If you try to count string, the added quotations marks are valid characters and will be counted.

If you want to make empty string with str that doesn't have any quotation marks, but is still a String you can use text:
str ""; // "" count str ""; // 2 str text ""; // count str text ""; // 0

Be careful when using str on arrays and you are used to putting a whitespace behind every comma:
str [0, 0, 0] == "[0, 0, 0]"; // false
