I'll describe the problem in more detail.  Suppose you have
the following C source:

void main ()
  printf "Hello\n";

In the output, the "\n" sequence is translated into an actual newline,
instead of being displayed as character "\" followed by character "n".
Now, I can create a translation table to get around this problem, but
it still strikes me as a bug (or feature?) of sorts.  Why is the library
performing escape expansion in the first place?

Thanks again for your time!
Best regards,
