Tcl_Backslash — parse a backslash sequence
The use of Tcl_Backslash is deprecated in favor of
- char *src (in)
Pointer to a string starting with a backslash.
- int *countPtr (out)
If countPtr is not NULL, *countPtr gets filled
in with number of characters in the backslash sequence, including
the backslash character.
This is a utility procedure provided for backwards compatibility with
non-internationalized Tcl extensions. It parses a backslash sequence and
returns the low byte of the Unicode 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.
