Is that when we use then as literals value for assigning to a character we cannot use their hexadecimal equivalent. For eg: char c = '\u000a' gives compile error. so we have to use char c = '\b'; Pls. correct if wrong and explain to me.
Just to further Val's post, you cannot use '\u000A' or '\u000D' in a String literal or in single-line comments. One of the first things the compiler does is evaulate Unicode literals. The above are intrepeted literally as 'newline' and 'carriage return'. They will break your code. Always use '\n' and '\r' ------------------ Jane Griscti Sun Certified Programmer for the Java� 2 Platform
