Official Mirror:
This module provides a flexible calling interface to some frequently-performed string conversion functions, including applying and removing C/Unix-style backslash escapes like \n and \t, wrapping and removing double-quotes, and truncating to fit within a desired length. Furthermore, the escape() function provides for dynamic selection of operations by using a package hash variable to map escape specification strings to the functions which implement them. The lookup imposes a bit of a performance penalty, but allows for some useful late-binding behaviour. Compound specifications (ex. 'quoted uppercase') are expanded to a list of functions to be applied in order. Other modules may also register their functions here for later general use. (See the "CALLING BY NAME" section below for more.)
