What does \ n mean?

Hello,

I came across this expression in C code \ n. Would anyone know
what this means?
Thanks

I ripped this straight from the C Standard text:



\a (alert) Produces an audible or visible alert. The active
position shall not be changed.

\b (backspace) Moves the active position to the previous
position on the current line. If the active position is
at the initial position of a line, the behavior is
unspecified.

\f (form feed) Moves the active position to the initial
position at the start of the next logical page.

\n (new line) Moves the active position to the initial
position of the next line.

\r (carriage return) Moves the active position to the
initial position of the current line.

\t (horizontal tab) Moves the active position to the next
horizontal tabulation position on the current line. If
the active position is at or past the last defined
horizontal tabulation position, the behavior is
unspecified.

\v (vertical tab) Moves the active position to the initial
position of the next vertical tabulation position. If
the active position is at or past the last defined
vertical tabulation position, the behavior is
unspecified.
kind regards,

Jos
