Special Characters

The Security Policy Scripting Language supports a standard set of special characters. Use special characters in place of characters that are impossible to enter using the keyboard or have other meanings in policy language strings. These characters can be used in the same way as any other single character, and they should be enclosed in either single or double quotation marks.

Character Command
\a Alert
\b Backspace
\n Newline
\r Carriage return
\t Tab character
\' Single quotation mark
\" Double quotation mark
\\ Backslash
Tab = '\t';

This sets the variable with the Tab character.

StringExample = "start a new line \n";

This adds a new line character at the end of the string.
