using the backslash character (‘’). Inline spaces are treated as part

xhh ASCII character in hexadecimal notation
The sequence xhh allows you to specify any ASCII character as a hexadecimal
character code. For example, you can give the ASCII backspace character
as the normal C escape sequence (b), or you can code it as x08 hexadecimal.
You must use at least one digit for a hexadecimal escape sequence, but
you can omit the second digit. Therefore, you can specify the hexadecimal
escape sequence for the backspace as either x8 or x08.
