Hello, I am using codeblocks and I wrote a quick abbreviation for cout, it was something like:

Quote
cout << "|" << "\n";

But every time I close and open Codeblocks, the abbreviation changes to:

Quote
cout << "|" << "
";

Is there a way to maintain that literal "\n"? Thanks a lot.

Try this:
Code
cout << "|" << endl;
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I prefer using the "\n" instead of std::endl operator as long as I don't need to flush the buffer, and since I am writing really simple programs right now, I rarely need to do it.
Because of this abbreviation problem, I am using endl, but I'd like to know if there's a way to use the "\n" character without getting it changed to an actual newline on the abbreviation definition.

Thanks a lot.
