NAME
       Tcl_Backslash - parse a backslash sequence

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<tcl.h>

       char
       Tcl_Backslash(src, countPtr)

ARGUMENTS
       char *src (in)		    Pointer  to	a string starting with a back-
				    slash.

       int *countPtr (out)	    If countPtr	is not	NULL,  *countPtr  gets
				    filled in with number of characters	in the
				    backslash sequence,	 including  the	 back-
				    slash character.
______________________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION
       The use of Tcl_Backslash	is deprecated in favor of Tcl_UtfBackslash.

       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 se-
       quences.	 All of	the sequences described	in the Tcl  manual  entry  are
       supported by Tcl_Backslash.
