Format code tag that literally means "Replace this with a niger". Orinigally introduced in the C programming language as a format specifier for the printf function, it was later adopted by a plethora of other languages such as java, ruby, etc.
In C:

printf("Hello\n");
printf("World.\n");

Produces;

Hello
World.

Syntax is almost identical in any other language that implements printf.
