..  print_unescaped(io, s::AbstractString)

General unescaping of traditional C and Unicode escape sequences. Reverse of :func:`print_escaped`.


The print_unescaped(io, s::AbstractString) function in Julia performs general unescaping of traditional C and Unicode escape sequences. It is the reverse of the print_escaped function.

julia> io = IOBuffer();
julia> print_unescaped(io, "Hello\\nWorld\\t\\u2764")
julia> String(take!(io))

This example demonstrates how the print_unescaped function can be used to unescape C and Unicode escape sequences in a string. The resulting string is "Hello\nWorld\t❤", where \n is converted to a newline, \t is converted to a tab, and \u2764 is converted to the corresponding Unicode character ❤.

It is important to note that the print_unescaped function operates on the provided AbstractString and writes the unescaped output to the given IO object, which can then be converted to a string using String(take!(io)).

Please note that the print_unescaped function does not handle all possible escape sequences and may not work as expected in certain cases.
