how do I get the console to recognize the new line character. I'm using the /n character.
I'm unclear as to why that is not the correct input
var escapedNewLine = "thisisastring /n"; var escapedBackslash = ""; var escapedTab = "";

Your escape character is wrong, it's
var escapedNewLine = "\n";

Yes, as William Li points out
\n is an new line character. Also, you don't need the
"thisisastring" part in your answer.
