The string doesn't keep track of whether it was written in the source
code as "\r" or "\^M" or with the actual ^M character or with "\015"
etc... so it's no wonder the printout is not exactly the same as what
you had in the source. I do wonder why it says \15 instead of \015, \r,
or something else: I've almost never seen 2-digit-long octal for chars,
(only single-digit for NUL and 3-digit for other things), so it's
admittedly a poor choice.
