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 backslash.

       int    *countPtr   (out)     If	countPtr isn't 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-international- |
       ized Tcl extensions.  It parses a backslash sequence and returns the low byte of the  Uni- |
       code 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.   All  of  the
       sequences described in the Tcl manual entry are supported by Tcl_Backslash.
