What would you rather expect to see within Pd? Non-escaped commas or
single-escaped commas? What version of Pd is that?
I made a small test with most recent 0.45 from git and my results are
somewhat different, though still a bit messy:
\, comma at the beginning;
comma\, right after first word;
comma in\, the middle;
comma at the end\,;
print: , comma at the beginning
print: comma, right after first word
print: comma in\, the middle
print: comma at the end\,
While commas at the beginning or after the first word are displayed
unescaped, all other commas are shown with escaping character. Is that a
bug? Am I right in thinking it would be desirable if escaping characters
wouldn't be displayed at all?
It might be worth to note that feeding those lines to another [textfile]
leads to a text file identical to the source which might indicate this
is only a displaying issue.
