See msg279799 from issue28128, repeated here:


Seems the ^ pointer is not always correct. For example, in the function scope it's correct:

$ cat test.py 
def foo():
    s = 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft'

$ python3.7 -W error test.py
  File "test.py", line 2
    s = 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft'
           ^
SyntaxError: invalid escape sequence \P

On the other hand, top-level literals confuses the pointer:

$ cat test.py               
s = 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft'

$ python3.7 -W error test.py
  File "test.py", line 1
    s = 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft'
       ^
SyntaxError: invalid escape sequence \P

Is that expected?
