Indeed! It allows to substitute newlines.

$ export NL='
$ cmd.exe /c 'printf "%s\n" foo^%NL%%NL%bar' | od -t x1
0000000 66 6f 6f 0a 62 61 72 0a

But I don't succeed in getting a carriage-return character in the same way:

$ eval `echo "export CR='_'" | tr '_' '\r'`
$ cmd.exe /c 'printf "%s\n" foo^%CR%%CR%bar' | od -t x1
0000000 66 6f 6f 62 61 72 0a

Any idea how to get this one?

And then there is also the problem with byte sequences that are not
strings in the current locale encoding...
