correction addSlashes()

Hi Sylvain,

Unfortunately, there is no standard function to add
'escape characters' into string -- not one that I
found in the dictionary anyway.
The 'format' function works the other way around
though, so that might be interesting to have a look at
in the Transcript Dictionary.
At any rate, your 'addSlashes' function should work
okay, though I'd be careful with that double quote
transformation.
XTalk uses double quotes, SQL uses single quotes. This
should be an advantage, as you can easily write an
entire SQL statement in one XTalk string.
But sometimes, it gets back at you ;-)

Best regards,

Jan Schenkel.
