Update of bug #32240 (project octave):

                  Status:                    None => Invalid                
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 
                 Summary: \b doesn't work when followed directly by \n => b
doesn't work when followed directly by n


Follow-up Comment #1:

As far as I can tell, Octave is sending the sequence of characters

H I <BS> <LF>

to the  terminal.

I think the reason the I doesn't disappear when it is followed by backspace
and linefeed is that neither of these are printing characters, so they don't
overwrite the previous character.  When you follow the backspace character by
another printing character, it overwrites the I.  This all looks like the
expected behavior to me, so I'm closing this report as invalid.
