What do you mean by saying that " the value of a string literal is not known until runtime"?

I am paraphrasing half a dozen other comments posted across various answers.

What does the phrase "to paraphrase half a dozen" mean?

You are splitting the sentence in the wrong place.

I am paraphrasing half a dozen other comments posted across various answers.

I am paraphrasing [something]. What is that something? Half a dozen other comments.

"Half a dozen" can mean "exactly six" or "approximately six".
