DESCRIPTION
       This is a utility procedure used by several of the Tcl commands.  It
       parses a backslash sequence and returns the single character
       corresponding to the sequence.  Tcl_Backslash modifies *countPtr to
       contain the number of characters in the backslash sequence.

       See the Tcl manual entry for information on the valid backslash
       sequences.  All of the sequences described in the Tcl manual entry are
       supported by Tcl_Backslash.
