Confusion while importing data into atlas

In Chapter 1:Driver Setup , Lecture:README-

import data into Atlas

mongorestore --drop --gzip --uri
“mongodb+srv://m220student:m220password@<YOUR_CLUSTER_URI>” data
An error occured due to this backward slash in the command line. I suppose the command is without backward slash and the same did work for me. Please correct me if I’m wrong or if there is some different utility of backward slash.

(backslash) is used to split long commands
Not required in this case

Thanks for the resolution.
I noticed that (backslash) was not there in later part of the course where the same thing was again discussed, but initially it created confusion.
