MGI Escaped Strings


In order to use special reserved characters, you must use the escaped string format. Escaped strings use the backslash ("\") to denote special characters that normally cannot be entered. The supported escaped characters are:

  • \\ - Inserts the backslash "\" character
  • \r - Inserts a carriage return
  • \n - Inserts a new line (linefeed)
  • \t - Inserts a tab
  • \v - Inserts a vertical tab
  • \xyz - Inserts an ASCII value "xyz" is the character's three digit ASCII character value. Ex: \065 is 'A'.
