C Programming Escape Sequences
Escape sequences are special characters that are used to represent certain non-printable characters such as newline, tab, or backspace. In C, escape sequences are represented by a backslash
\ followed by a specific character or sequence of characters.
Here is a list of the most commonly used escape sequences in C:
|'||Single quotation mark|
|"||Double quotation mark|
Using Escape Sequences: Escape sequences are used in C programs to represent special characters that are not printable or have a special meaning. For example, to output a newline character, the syntax would be:
1printf("This is line 1.\nThis is line 2.");
1This is line 1. 2This is line 2.
