... \n ... \r ... \t ...
String templates interpret the character combinations
\t as control characters.
|Control Character||Meaning||Hexadecimal Value|
A control character is replaced by its hexadecimal value (appropriate to the current code page) in the memory of the character string created by the string template.
- If a control character is to be displayed as literal text, it can be escaped by being prefixed with the escape character
- The control characters in string templates replace the use of some attributes of the class CL_ABAP_CHAR_UTILITIES.
