Program to Print Backslash () in C#
  • Last Updated : 22 Jun, 2020

\ is a special character (sign) In C#. It is used for escape sequences(break out) such as to print a new line – we use \n, to print a tab – we use \t. We have to use a double backslash (\\) to print a backslash (\).

If we write \ within the message – it throws an error “Unrecognized escape sequence”.

Examples:

Input  : \\
         Geeksfor\\Geeks
Output : \
         Geeksfor\Geeks
        
Input : Clean\\Evironment
Output: Clean\Evironment

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

Example 1:



filter_none

close

play_arrow

brightness_4
code

// C# program to print backslash (\)
using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Text;
  
namespace geeks {
  
class GFG {
  
    // Main Method
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        // to print "\"
        Console.WriteLine("\\");
  
        // to print "\" between string
        Console.WriteLine("Geeksfor\\Geeks");
    }
}
}

Output:

\
Geeksfor\Geeks

    {
  
        // to print "\" between string
        Console.WriteLine("Green\Clean");
    }
}
}

        // to print "\" between string
        Console.WriteLine("Clean\\Evironment");
  
        // to print "\"n and "\"t
        Console.WriteLine("\\n\\t");
    }
}
}

Output:
