scan_cescape(3)		   Library Functions Manual	       scan_cescape(3)

NAME
       scan_cescape - parse C escaped string

SYNTAX
       #include	<libowfat/textcode.h>

       size_t scan_cescape(const char *src,char	*dest,size_t* destlen);

DESCRIPTION
       scan_cescape  parses  C escaped text from src into dest.	 Parsing stops
       at the 0	terminator, invalid input characters or	a  double  quote  that
       was not escaped.

       C  escape sequences like	\n and \x0a and	\012 are translated into their
       binary counterparts. The	C99 escape sequences \u	and \U	are  supported
       and lead	to UTF-8 sequences being output.

       scan_cescape will then write the	number of bytes	in dest	into *destlen,
       and return the number of	bytes decoded from src.

       dest can	be NULL. destlen can be	NULL. dest can be src.

       To make sure dest is large enough, either allocate strlen(src)+1	 bytes
       or  call	scan_cescape twice, the	first time with	dest ==	NULL (*destlen
       will still be written).

RETURN VALUE
       scan_cescape returns the	number of bytes	successfully parsed from src.

EXAMPLES
       scan_cescape("test\n
