[erlang-questions] literal character syntax

I would like to make a suggestion regarding the accepted literal characters
syntax. At the moment, any character following a $ is accepted as itself. I
find it very confusing when these characters are whitespace or control
chars and my suggestion is to refuse these literals. Most of them have
escaped representations and the others should be written as integers anyway.

What do you think? Is anyone using these in a meaningful way?

best regards,
