look it up in an ascii-table.

zmoelnig at umlautd:~/shad$ ascii LF
ASCII 0/10 is decimal 010, hex 0a, octal 012, bits 00001010: called ^J, 
Official name: Line Feed
Other names: Newline, \n

zmoelnig at umlautd:~/shad$ ascii CR
ASCII 0/13 is decimal 013, hex 0d, octal 015, bits 00001101: called ^M, CR
Official name: Carriage Return
C escape: '\r'
Other names:

you can then use %c in [makefilename] to generate this character.
