mplist_deserialize - Generate a property list by deserializing an M-text.
MPlist * mplist_deserialize (MText * mt)
Generate a property list by deserializing an M-text. The mplist_deserialize() function parses M-text mt and returns a property list. The syntax of mt is as follows. MT ::= '(' ELEMENT * ')' ELEMENT ::= SYMBOL | INTEGER | M-TEXT | PLIST SYMBOL ::= ascii-character-sequence INTEGER ::= '-' ? [ '0' | .. | '9' ]+ | '0x' [ '0' | .. | '9' | 'A' | .. | 'F' | 'a' | .. | 'f' ]+ M-TEXT ::= ''' character-sequence ''' Each alternatives of ELEMENT is assigned one of these keys: Msymbol, Minteger, Mtext, Mplist In an ascii-character-sequence, a backslash (\) is used as the escape character, which means that, for instance, abc\ def produces a symbol whose name is of length seven with the fourth character being a space.
