in reply to Looking for backslashed characters

String::Escape seems to do what you ask.

print printable( "\tNow is the time\nfor all good folks\n" ); \tNow is the time\nfor all good folks\n

tested code:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use String::Escape qw( printable ) ; open(FILE," text.txt"); while(<FILE>){ print printable($_); } close(FILE);
