Subject: echo "\\1"?
Date: Thu, 27 Jul 2017 12:23:09 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAC4gepeczuKhmanuBqYybUTjvo6eNeZk6FyqHjOhx8n-qDfCSw@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

According the man pages, for echo command, "\\" should print '\'
character, and \0digits should print the byte in octal base.
But the command

echo "\\1"

outputs the byte 0x01 in hexadecimal (or 001 in octal).
Is this a bad behavior or is intentional?

Bosco.
