Subject [jira] Created: (LANG-498) Add StringEscapeUtils.escapeText() methods
Date Tue, 28 Apr 2009 00:17:31 GMT
Add StringEscapeUtils.escapeText() methods
------------------------------------------

                 Key: LANG-498
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-498
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 3.x, 2.x
            Reporter: Henning Schmiedehausen
         Attachments: LANG-498.patch

I needed to escape text to be print out to a file; mainly so that all non-ASCII characters
(< 32 and >=127) are printed out as escapes (if available) or unicode escapes. This
is a one-way conversion, there is no way to find out whether a String contained "\\n" or a
newline before conversion, so I just set up escapeText() methods, no unescapeText(). 

Please apply to the next release of commons-lang. :-)
