Thanks man, but I need to know how to print out that sentence so it looks the exactly same way in my script.

I want it to look like this: The \t is the tab escape character.

Whenever I do it though it looks like this:
The is the tab escape character.

Thanks for your help.

I gave you the answer, you just did not think about it. Add a backslash in front of the tab character.

If you are in Python 3, print is a function instead of a statement.

I know this has been asked before - I've trawled through the mail archives and FAQs looking for any info, and only found "that's the way it works" answers. Basically, I want to turn off backslash ( \ ) as an escape character in string literals. It makes porting apps to PostgreSQL much more difficult, because no major rdbms behaves this way (at least, none of Oracle, SQL Server,DB2, Sybase, Informix, SQL Anywhere or SQL Base ... the one's...

Hi, 'C' says \ is the escape character to be used when characters are to be interpreted in an uncommon sense, e.g. \t usage in printf(), but for printing % through printf(), i have read that %% should be used. Wouldn't it have been better (from design perspective) if the same escape character had been used in this case too. Forgive me for posting without verfying things with any standard compiler, i don't have the means for now.
