|doCBackslashes function is a simple
compiler convenience function which
implements the C backslash convention on a block
of characters -- sequences consisting of a backslash
character followed by another character are contracted
to the single corresponding character.
The current list of escapes recognized:
'\0' '\a' '\b' '\f' '\n' '\r' '\t' '\v'
(Other characters preceded by backslash simply reduce to themselves.)
While this function is intended to be used on blocks of characters, it is not an error to have non-character values in the block.
