invalid-character-carriage-return / E2511ΒΆ

Message emitted:

Invalid unescaped character carriage-return, use "\r" instead.


Moves the cursor to the start of line, subsequent characters overwrite the start of the line.

Correct code:

STRING = "Valid carriage return: \r"

Additional details:

This message exists because one of our checkers is very generic, but it's never going to raise during normal use as it's a syntax-error that would prevent the python ast (and thus pylint) from constructing a code representation of the file.

You could encounter it by feeding a properly constructed node directly to the checker.
