     new line

       
     carriage return

       	     horizontal tab

            vertical tab

       \NNN   byte with octal value NNN (1 to 3 digits)

       \xHH   byte with hexadecimal value HH (1 to 2 digits)

       \uHHHH Unicode (ISO/IEC 10646) character with hex value HHHH (4 digits)

       \UHHHHHHHH
              Unicode character with hex value HHHHHHHH (8 digits)

       %%     a single %

       %b     ARGUMENT  as  a string with '\' escapes interpreted, except that
              octal escapes are of the form  or NNN

       and all C format specifications ending with one of diouxXfeEgGcs,  with
       ARGUMENTs converted to proper type first.  Variable widths are handled.

       NOTE:  your  shell  may  have  its own version of printf, which usually
       supersedes the version described here.  Please refer  to  your  shell's
       documentation for details about the options it supports.
