Hi, I am facing a problem where escape character getting printed. String str = "first \n second"; expected output is first second Assume that this string "str" is build by some other part of the program and on printing output i am getting is first \n second Please can anyone tell where i am going wrong. Thanks in advance. -arun
It's just a hunch, but I would double check that the program that creates the string isn't actually creating it as "\\n". In that case the backslash character itself is being escaped to give a literal backslash. PCS
