     char   *src	(in)	  Pointer to a string starting with a

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     This is a utility procedure used by several of the	Tcl commands.  It
     parses a backslash	sequence and returns the single	character

     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.
