Ways to print escape characters in Python
Escape characters are characters that are generally used to perform certain tasks and their usage in code directs the compiler to take a suitable action mapped to that character.
'\n' --> Leaves a line '\t' --> Leaves a space
The string after resolving escape character is : I Love Geeksforgeeks
But in certain cases it is desired not to resolve escapes, i.e the entire unresolved string has

This function returns a string in its printable format, i.e doesn’t resolve the escape sequences.
The string without repr() is : I Love Geeksforgeeks The string after using repr() is : 'I\nLove\tGeeksforgeeks'
Adding “r” or “R” to the target string triggers a repr() to the string internally and stops from the resolution of escape characters.
The string without r/R is : I Love Geeksforgeeks The string after using r is : I\nLove\tGeeksforgeeks The string after using R is : I\nLove\tGeeksforgeeks
