       DB::escape - Escape a string to be used as part of a query


       String escape( String val )


       val The String to escape


       Escapes  backslashes,  apostrophes and quotes in a string to protect against SQL injection
       attacks. This function should be used only as a last resort -  prepared  statements  using
       DB.prepare  (3kaya)  and  DB.execPrepared (3kaya) are supported by all database libraries,
       and are far less prone to human error.
