Re:


Yes, I understand. However, if a string to be inserted in the database is
input by the user, then special characters (quotes, tabs, newlines,
backslashes) must be escaped with a backslash before the string can be used
in an SQL INSERT statement. Is there any existing method for
auto-backslashing a string, or is this something I'll have to handle
programmatically myself?
