[antlr-interest] lexer rule for string

I am trying to recognize some strings in a C program.

I first had a lexer rule defined as is:

STRING: '"' ~'"' '"';

This worked pretty well until I had some traces like:
 printf("The string is  \" the_string \" ");

How can i make the lexer understand that \" is not the
end of my string but is actually part of my string
since there is an escape char before?
