A bytestring is an array of bytes with no particular meaning. Printing bytes prints a represenetation of the array with the b prefix. Escapes are still present and line breaks don’t matter.

Assuming they represent text, decode the bytes to a string for output.

data = b'test\nbreak'
print(data)
print(data.decode('utf8'))
