[fpc-pascal] JSON parser error due to my data values.

I have the following snippet in a JSON file.

	"Settings": {
		"SQLDir": "d:\data"		


When I load the complete JSON file using FPC's jsonparser.pp unit I get
a parser error.

"Invalid character at line 6, pos 16: 'd' "

It seems like it is trying to interpret the field data value like a
C/C++ escape sequence. eg: \n meaning NewLine

I such escape sequence processing a JSON standard? Can I tell the JSON
parser to treat data as-is, without any interpretation?
