[vlc-devel] [PATCH] backslash-escaping for the telnet interface

Hi all,

I thought it'd be useful to be able to include CRLFs in MRLs when 
controlling VLM from the telnet interface, and so came up with the 
following patch which allows for basic \-style escaping (currently, only 
LF and CRLF escaping is implemented).

Not sure how useful this might be for anyone else - and it doesn't provide 
support for --vlm-conf, so perhaps any unescaping code should be 
implemented in a new layer within vlm_ExecuteCommand() rather than within 
the telnet interface.  This is good enough for my purposes, however:


positive feedback, scorn, ridicule etc. welcome :)
