NAME

       debconf-escape - helper when working with debconf's escape capability

SYNOPSIS

        debconf-escape -e < unescaped-text
        debconf-escape -u < escaped-text

DESCRIPTION

       When debconf has the 'escape' capability set, it will expect commands you send it to have
       backslashes and newlines escaped (as "\\" and "\n" respectively) and will in turn escape
       backslashes and newlines in its replies. This can be used, for example, to substitute
       multi-line strings into templates, or to get multi-line extended descriptions reliably
       using "METAGET".
