**Backslash Java:** Like C/C++, Java also comes with a group of characters treated as a single character and this single character also represents an ASCII value. These characters are known as **escape sequences** and precede (starts) with a **backward slash \** like **\n** and **\t** etc. The name is so derived as they escape the normal flow or printing of characters. The **\n** escapes of printing in the same line and instead prints in a separate line.
