Description Ed Giardina 2016-10-11 18:12:27 UTC
Description of Problem:

I've got some string interpolation code that compiles in MSBuild on Windows but not on Mac OSX Sierra

public static string SanitizeCsv(string field)
            return string.IsNullOrEmpty(field)
              ? string.Empty
              : $"\"{field.Replace("\"", "\\\"").Replace("\n", "\\n")}\"";

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Author the above function
2. Code will fail to build

Actual Results:
Return compiler error on the : $" line with
Error CS8076: Missing close delimiter `}' for interpolated expression (CS8076) (Core)

Expected Results:
Code to compile

How often does this happen? 
Every build

Additional Information:
Mono JIT compiler version 4.6.1
Xamarin Studio Community 6.1.1 build 15
