Escape Sequences

Certain special characters are represented as escape sequences. An escape sequence begins with a \ (backslash) followed by an alphanumeric character. For example, the \n escape sequence represents the newline character. Note that the two characters of an escape sequence are construed as a single character. Here's a complete list of the escape sequences in C++:

\a /*alert (bell)*/ \b /*backspace*/ \f /*formfeed*/ \n /*newline*/ \r /*carriage return*/ \t /*horizontal tab*/ \v /*vertical tab*/ \\ /*backslash*/ \? /*question mark*/ \' /*single quote*/ \" /*double quote*/ \000 /*octal number*/ \xhh /*hexadecimal number*/
