I've checked the documentation but can't see anything -- does anyone know if its possible to escape the newlines returned from some OIDs?
I need to parse the output in a script and its causing me headaches.

In my code I can parse each line of the output and split it on the first space which works until I get a multiline response like the sysDescr OID above. It would be great if there was some way to actually print \n in the response instead of a real new line.
