Feature #12275

Updated by asnow (Andrew Bolshov) about 4 years ago

I think it will be usefull to have function that convert input string as it was written in prime qouted string or in double qouted string. It's part of metaprogramming. 
 Example: 

 ~~~ ruby 
 class String 
   # Create new string like it will be writed in qoutes. Optional argument define type of qouting used: true - prime qoute, false - double qoute. Default is double qoute. 
   def unescape prime = false true 
     eval( prime ? "'#{self}'" : "\"#{self}\"" ) 
   end 
 end 

 "\\\t".unescape # => "\t" 
 ~~~
