You can put the formatting characters in gprint, print and comment statements.
It is restricted to 1 per statement, though. If I need to, like two newlines, 
I put one in the gprint statement and one in a comment.

Within perl and within the bash shell, backslashes are eaten if the string is surrounded by double quotes.
The trick is to either use single quotes or escaped backslashes in double quotes.

So: print "\\n" does the same as print '\n'
