I can't get LaTeX to generate index entry for newline \n. I tried \index{"\\n"} and \index{"\n"} and \index{\n} and \index{\\n}. None of these seem to work.

I am getting errors like:

! LaTeX Error: There's no line here to end.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

l.14   \item \\n
                |hyperpage, 19

Anyone knows?

If you want it alphabetized under symbols use


If you want it alphabetized under "n", use
