NAME         top

       auparse_set_escape_mode - choose escape method

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <auparse.h>

       void auparse_set_escape_mode(auparse_state_t *au, auparse_esc_t
       mode);

DESCRIPTION         top

       auparse_set_escape_mode is used to set the escaping method that
       will be used to output interpretted text. The choices for the
       mode variable are:

              AUPARSE_ESC_RAW
                     No escaping of any kind is done.

              AUPARSE_ESC_TTY
                     Escape TTY control characters so that they are
                     harmless to display on a terminal. When any control
                     character is found, they are displayed as octal
                     numbers. This is the default mode that the auparse
                     library is initialized with.

              AUPARSE_ESC_SHELL
                     Besides escaping control characters, this will
                     escape some characters that can cause problems when
                     used with shell scripting. Any escaped control
                     characters are displayed as octal numbers. Other
                     escaped characters are proceeded with a backslash.
                     The additional characters it escapes are: " ' ` $ \

              AUPARSE_ESC_SHELL_QUOTE
                     Similar to AUPARSE_ESC_SHELL but expands the
                     character set to include shell operators. Any
                     escaped control characters are displayed as octal
                     numbers. Other escaped characters are proceeded
                     with a backslash. The additional characters it
                     escapes include: ; '  " ` # $ & * ? [ ] < > { } \

       None
