Tcl_Backslash(3) Tcl Library Procedures
Tcl_Backslash - parse a backslash sequence
char *src (in) Pointer to a string starting
with a backslash.
int *countPtr (out) If countPtr isn't NULL,
*countPtr gets filled in with
number of characters in the
backslash sequence, including
the backslash character.
This is a utility procedure used by several of the Tcl com-
mands. It parses a backslash sequence and returns the sin-
gle character corresponding to the sequence. Tcl_Backslash
modifies *countPtr to contain the number of characters in
the backslash sequence.
See the Tcl manual entry for information on the valid
backslash sequences. All of the sequences described in the
Tcl manual entry are supported by Tcl_Backslash.
