Sure. When used in a string that will be directed to a printer, it causes the succeeding output to begin on a new page, so it is like a page eject. It instructs the printer to begin the next output on a new page even if the previous page is not yet completely full. Does that help.? For example: "ABC\nDEF\nGHI\fXYZ" will print ABC on the first line, DEF one the second line, GHI on the third line, and XYZ at the top of the next page. ------- ABC DEF GHI
