Lua escape sequence


New Coder

print('\065') -- -->A
print('\\0' .. 65)-- -->\065
Can anyone explain why in the first case it is an escape sequence but not in the second?

Never used Lua before, but I'm guessing in the second print statement, the first escape character is escaping the second escape character, so it just becomes a normal backslash.
