Newline character

Hello,

I would like to simply insert a newline character at the end of each item in an array, being written to file.  Does JMP not recognize '\n'?  If so how would I get it to output

file1

file2

file3

rather than

file1\nfile2\nfile3

for(i=1,i<=length(Files),i++,
	filestring=filestring|| " " || char(Files[i]) || "\n");
f=Save Text File(pypath || "argfile.txt",filestring,mode("replace"));

Thanks!

The complete list of Escape Characters can be found in the Scripting Guide

For your need, \!n is the escape character sequence

Re: Newline character

Thanks!

Is there any (logical) reason why it is not simply \n, as in many other languages?

Re: Newline character

I am not aware of why JMP implemented a 2 character escape sequence.  Maybe to help with double byte characters.  Maybe someone at JMP may have the logic of their decision.
