Hi, I have a doudt regarding char type variables intialization, i.e. how r the following declarations valid?
e.g char c = '\061'; char c = '\61';
what does the escape character '\' signify?

We can use the escape sequence \ddd to specify a character literal by octal value, where each digit d can be any octal digit (0-7). The number of digits nust be 3 or fewer, and the octal value must not exceed \377, that is, only the first 256 characters can be specified with this notation.
