Deprecated: Data::Escape

I propose we remove runtime/parrot/library/Data/Escape.pir ; it provides a single method for escaping strings, which we now have in the form of an opcode, "escape".

Minor gotchas:

* The library provides for the ability to escape " and ' differently; not sure this is needed (Though it is tested for.)

* The library and the opcode generate different escaped representations: e.g. opcode does "\u0777", library does "\x{777}"

Can someone supply a patch which resolves the 'gotchas'? If so, then we can decide whether to proceed with the deprecation or not.

Thank you very much.

I haven't heard anyone say they need that functionality.

The only thing stopping me from ripping it out at this point is the Streams test that fails when I try.

  • status changed from new to closed
  • resolution set to fixed

The streams tests were fixed in r36266; library removed in r36861.

languages/dotnet will need to update to track this change.
