Name

sql — quote strings for use in SQL statements, without referencing a specific database

DESCRIPTION

The filter replaces single quotes (') with two single quotes (''). In addition, it replaces each backslash (\) with two backslashes (\\) to properly escape all content, but backslash escaping can be turned off by setting the pragma.

EXAMPLES

No examples are available at this time. We do consider this a problem and will try to supply some.

NOTES

The filter is intended to be used on SQL strings.

For more information on Perl Regular Expressions, pattern matching and character classes, see perlre(1).
