Subject backspace in new test suite.
Date Thu, 20 May 2004 17:44:11 GMT

the new test suite uses a \b in it's output.  In my bash shell/emacs
environment, this produces some ugly output.

testatomic.c: |^H/^H-^H|^H\^H-^H|...etc

using the octal value \008 produces the desired effect.  I believe this is
shell independent and portable.
