There are many representations of carriage return (CR) and new line (NL). A common CR is a pilcrow, which is U+00B6.

Thing is that you can't include something for human readers *and* not screw up the code, if you want them to copy-paste, as the NL in your human version would have to be some glyph.

A common representation of "this line continues" is an ellipsis or a little down-and-left arrow. See Search for 21B5.

A font called Arial Terminal Two has a tiny "N" and "L" represented like a fraction. Imagine 1/2 using super & subscripts, only no virgule and using N and L instead of 1 and 2.
