This kind of escaping for backslash and double-quote (and other chars,
for an example, when a program reads in a latex source, is there an
escape function that can rewrite all `\' to `\\', `"' to `\"', and so
depending on Guile flavor) is built-in for ‘(object->string STRING)’,
but anything else (the "and so on" bit) you have to define for yourself,
or find something already defined.
For example, Guile-BAUX provides module ‘(guile-baux write-string)’
which exports proc ‘write-string’ that handles twelve additional
Another example is Guile-PG module ‘(database postgres-qcons)’, which
has all manner of procs to DTRT for various "and so on" cases:
I think it would be nice for these procs (and perhaps your LaTeX
oriented one, once defined) to be rebased onto a general one, hosted
apart from any particular Guile version (perhaps Guile-Lib -- is that
project still viable?).
Or maybe i'm missing something already out there by now. I remember
fruitlessly searching a number of years back, but things may have
changed since then. Here's some related discussion:
