◆ decode_qstring()

const char * decode_qstring ( const char *  start,
size_t  in_len_max,
char **  out,
size_t *  out_len 

Given a pointer to a string starting at start containing in_len_max characters, decode a string beginning with one double quote, containing any number of non-quote characters or characters escaped with a backslash, and ending with a final double quote. Place the resulting string (unquoted, unescaped) into a newly allocated string in *out; store its length in out_len. On success, return a pointer to the character immediately following the escaped string. On failure, return NULL.
