NAME
       debconf-escape - helper when working with debconf's escape capability

SYNOPSIS
	debconf-escape -e < unescaped-text
	debconf-escape -u < escaped-text

DESCRIPTION
       When debconf has the 'escape' capability set, it will expect commands you send it to have
       backslashes and newlines escaped (as "\\" and "\n" respectively) and will in turn escape
       backslashes and newlines in its replies. This can be used, for example, to substitute
       multi-line strings into templates, or to get multi-line extended descriptions reliably
       using "METAGET".
