So what _is_ your system?  What C compiler?  If a UNIX-like system,
did you use "od -c" to inspect the output, or what?

	'\r' seems to be converted into the number 13 in the generated C code,

Control-M is the ASCII/ISO 646/ISO 8859/ISO 10646 control character
"Carriage Return".  Can't think of any ASCII-based system where \r
wouldn't be Control-M.
