```Alain,

a = 1; b = 2; Plot[ Sin[x], {x, 0, 1},
PlotLabel -> SequenceForm["a = ", a, "\nb = ", b]];

Hello.

By searching the archives I found how to write variables with
specific values.  E.g., the following examples work:

In[253]:= a=1;b=2; Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->"a=" <> ToString[a]
"b=" <> ToString[b] ]

In[254]:= a=1;b=2; Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->SequenceForm
["a=",a,"b=",b]]

Then I also found how to write a label on several lines:

In[256]:= Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->"2 \n lines"]

But I did not find or succeed in combining the two.  E.g., those do
not work:

In[255]:= a=1;b=2; Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->"a=" <> ToString[a]
\n "b=" <> ToString[b] ]

Syntax::sntxf: "a=1;b=2; Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->"a=" <>
ToString[a"
cannot be followed by "]\n"b=" <> ToString[b] ]".

In[264]:= a=1;b=2; Plot[
Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->SequenceForm["a=",a,\n" b=",b]]

Syntax::com: Warning: comma encountered with no adjacent expression; the
expression will be treated as Null.

Syntax::sntxf: "a=1;b=2; Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->SequenceForm
["a=",a"
cannot be followed by ",\n"b=",b]]".

In[264]:= a=1;b=2; Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->SequenceForm["a=",a]
\n SequenceForm["b=",b]]

Syntax::sntxf: "a=1;b=2; Plot[
Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->SequenceForm["a=",a]"
cannot be followed by " \n SequenceForm["b=",b]]".

Is there a way to achieve this goal?
