Question - Code string_escape ??

is there a way to escape all characters in a string. I know that using

Code:
@"string \n with \t escape characters"
but what if I have string in a variable read from a file...

var input;

and want to escape all the characters?

I think, that if you read '\n' from a file, then it will display as \n, as it's 92+110, not 10 in ASCII (UTF8 first 128 letters are probably same). Text file need to have real newline to read it as what GM would format when writing "\n" in code.

You are saying that reading from a file... they are already escaped? Great thank you ;) that was helpful

In fact they don't need to be escaped, as they are readed as already parsed string (like after game is compiled).
