How do i input "\0" and "\\0" in JIRA comments?

According to the introduction:


"\\" will mean that creates a line break, other than string \\ (0x5c, 0x5c in ASCII).


I would appreciate it if you could give me some advice.



Best regards,

As @wu chen noticed, I asked a similar question the day before in

I think the answer is that the backslash does not behave as documented and has conflicting definitions for \\ -- one which implies incorrectly that this produces a single backslash and one which explicitly states this creates a line break.


After testing, I found that there can not exist only two backslashes. Once there are, it will be a new line break.

I still don't know how to enter two backslashes gracefully.
