Control characters are formatting and other non-printing characters, such as ACK, BEL, CR, FF, LF, and VT. The Unicode standard assigns code points from \U0000 to \U001F, \U007F, and from \U0080 to \U009F to control characters. According to the Unicode standard, these values are to be interpreted as control characters unless their use is otherwise defined by an application. Valid control characters are members of the UnicodeCategory.Control category.
