Escape Codes

Some properties support C-style escape codes.

You can use C-style escape codes in the following properties:
  • ChatinString
  • ChatoutString
  • HeartbeatString
This allows you to easily define whether or not to send escape code sequences after commands. For example, the following ChatinString sends a carriage return character (\r) after the username and password:
ChatinString : ".*: user\r .*: passwd\r .*:"
The following character sequences are recognized.
Table 1. Escape codes

\b Backspace
\f Form-feed
\n New-line
\r Carriage return
\t Tab
\\ Backslash
\' Single quote
\" Double quote
Note: The escape sequences for backslash, single quote, and double quote should be double-escaped. For example, to send a backslash character (\) use \\\\.
