    Escape Codes


    How do we display escape codes like \n on the screen? I wanted the screen to display "Escape codes like \n rock!" on one line to no avail with:

    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    int main()
    cout<<"Escape codes like \n rock!";
    return 0;
    I am getting:
    Line 1: "Escape codes like"
    Line 2: "rock!"

    Thanks in advance and Happy New Year!

    std::cout << "\\n";
    From C to shining C++!

    Great graphics, sounds, algorithms, AI, pathfinding, visual effects, cutscenes, etc., etc. do NOT make a good game.
