This is great. Thank you!

So like most things in computing, the zeros are omitted, so \x{A} is actually \x{000A}.

    You're most welcome, three18ti!

    Perl expectedly parses both as "\n" (the leading zeros aren't significant):

    perl -MO=Deparse,-p -e 'print "\x{A}"'

    Output:

    print("\n"); -e syntax OK

    And:

    use warnings; use strict; print ord "\x{A}" if "\x{000A}" eq "\n";

    Output:

    10

    As you see, \x{A}, \x{000A} and \n all represent the same character.

[choroba]: How is Bembel different from Krug?
[hippo]: karlgoethebier, Ich habe kein Deutsch.
[Corion]: choroba: A Bembel is a traditional pottery ware, which is only(!) used for serving Cider (well, Apfelwein)
[shmem]: choroba: it's hessisch
[Corion]: Not every Krug is a Bembel!
[karlgoethebier]: there is just the mug: 🍺
[Corion]: A Bembel must look like this
[karlgoethebier]: https://de. wikipedia.org/ wiki/Bembel#/ media/File: Bembel_Zum_blauen_ Bock_1978.jpg
[choroba]: as my friend says, Ich stehe Deutsche ver nicht aber klein ;-)
[Corion]: Krug is generic pottery ware for pouring beverages, but a Bembel is painted with that blue paint and contains only (!) Apfelwein
