How to print a single backslash with Python?

Estimated read time 1 min read

To print a single backslash in Python, you can use the backslash character () itself. Since the backslash is also used to escape special characters, such as newline (\n) and tab (\t), you can use the backslash twice to escape the backslash character.

Here’s an example:

print("\\")

In the above code, the double backslash (“\”) is used to print a single backslash. The first backslash is used to escape the second backslash, so it is treated as a literal character.
