Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-498) Add StringEscapeUtils.escapeText() methods
Date Tue, 28 Apr 2009 00:39:30 GMT


Sebb commented on LANG-498:

Seems useful to me, but maybe it would be better to name it as toAsciiPrintable() or similar?
And perhaps it belongs in a different class.

> 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. :-)
