Expand description

Matches a byte string with escaped characters.

  • The first argument matches the normal characters (it must not match the control character)
  • The second argument is the control character (like \ in most languages)
  • The third argument matches the escaped characters and transforms them

As an example, the chain abc\tdef could be abc def (it also consumes the control character)

  escaped_transform(
    alpha1,
    '\\',
    alt((
      value("\\", tag("\\")),
      value("\"", tag("\"")),
      value("\n", tag("n")),
    ))
  )(input)
}
