NAME
       Tcl_Backslash - parse a backslash sequence

SYNOPSIS
       #include <tcl.h>

       char
       Tcl_Backslash(src, countPtr)

ARGUMENTS
       Pointer to a string(3,n) starting with a backslash.  If countPtr isn't NULL,
       *countPtr gets(3,n) filled in(1,8) with number of  characters  in(1,8)  the  backslash
       sequence, including the backslash character.


DESCRIPTION
       The use of Tcl_Backslash is deprecated in(1,8) 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(1,8) the backslash sequence.

       See  the  Tcl  manual  entry  for  information  on  the valid backslash
       sequences.  All of the sequences described in(1,8) the Tcl manual entry  are
       supported by Tcl_Backslash.
