Newbie question

Having used Miranda as well as Mathematic for a long time
I figured it was time to look into Erlang.

I ran into the following strange behaviour (line 18>)
16> [X || X <- [7,8], X>3].
17> [X || X <- [7], X>3].
18> [X || X <- [8], X>3].

I do not understand what the "\b" means, or where it comes
from. I presume the system looks at [8] as a representation
of the ASCII \b character??

How can I tell it to just respond with [8] on my screen?
