      \f "form feed" -- commonly used with output to printers. Ejects the current
      page.
      \a "bell" -- old hard-copy terminals and CRTs have a bell or beep that is
      activated by the "bell" character.
      \e "escape" -- starts an escape sequence. Most CRTs and printers understand
      special sequences to control their output.
      \E "end case" -- "\LSOME StrIng\E" returns "some string" (all lowercase).
      "\USome String\E" returns "SOME STRING" (all uppercase).

      Hope this helps

      Escape Sequences.

      \n Start a new file
      \ Insert a tab
      \f Insert a form feed
      \b Insert a backspace
      'a use the bell
      \e Insert and escape
      \012 Use an octal ASCII value
      \x0A use a hexadecimal ASCII value
      \cC Use a control character
      \\Insert a backslash
      \" Insert a double quotation mark.

      \f, \a, \e are a bit unfamiliar.
