Talk:Create your own text control codes

From Rosetta Code

Generally speaking, I agree that this is a bad idea, the language implementation should have everything you need already. I was mostly curious if it could be done at all. --Puppydrum64 (talk) 19:10, 2 October 2021 (UTC)

I'm not sure that "most" languages use null-terminated strings. Also, in the languages where escape sequences such as \r, \n etc. are used, in order to add another one, you would need to write your own compiler or pre-preocessor. I believe \n *is* character 10 when the ASCII/Unicode character set is used, BTW. \n outputs line-feed in Unix systems and carriage-return line-feed in Windows. This is independent of the age of the computer : ) --Tigerofdarkness (talk) 19:22, 2 October 2021 (UTC)
