I can't figure a way to get the value of ^@ as character in elisp. For
the moment I just copied the character in my .el source:

(defcustom etom-prompt-regexp "address@hidden"
  "Regexp which matches the Maya's prompt."
  :type 'regexp
  :group 'etom)

where ^@ is the character, not the string "^@".

[gnu.emacs.sources is for posting code; questions such as this should be
sent to gnu.emacs.help, which is where I'm cross-posting and directing
follow-ups.]

"^\000"

See the Nonprinting Characters node of the Emacs Lisp manual, follow the
link to the Character Type node, then its General Escape Syntax subnode.
