How your editor treats a backslash

This post is about escaping in Notepad++, escaping from what is commonly called a backslash. It is a typographic mark also denoted by a reverse slash or backslant, among others . When coding, many programming languages recognize this special character as a token to signal the compiler to treat the character following the backslash either normally ( if it would be treated specially when not preceded by the backslash ) or specially ( if it would otherwise be treated normally).rnrn
