What does it really mean by "escaping" in a string ?
The escape-sequence replacements are −
\n is replaced by the newline character
\r is replaced by the carriage-return character
\t is replaced by the tab character
\$ is replaced by the dollar sign itself ($)
\" is replaced by a single double-quote (")
\\ is replaced by a single backslash (\)
Does it mean "translate"/"convert"/"substitute" or does it mean "ignore this single quote and don't take it as the ending single quote" ? I thought the former but some google result links mention the latter but mostly Googling brings irrelevant results. Brings up links related to mysqli_real_escape_string.
