When defining a string, is there a way to include a carriage return in the text?
Yes. A carriage return is represented by the special escapedcharacter
. However, make sure that if you really wanta line separator, and not a carriage return, that you query the line.separatorproperty using System.getProperty(). Java supports the followingescaped characters:
- horizontal tab
- f form feed
- carriage return
- ” double quote
- ‘ single quote
- \ backslash
Octal values and Unicode escape values are also supported.
