Yes, you can escape a single quote - outside single quotes.
$ echo 'a'\''b' a'b

    ...But that's just pure evil =D

    A mistake can be valuable or costly, depending on how faithfully you pursue correction
      Welcome to the shell. Expansion of variables and word splitting in bash are some of the reasons to love Perl.

[Corion]: erix: Yes, but that's mostly for skipping characters you'll never read, but this approach skips the problem of needing to load more data while looking at a half-match
[Corion]: I mostly wonder how I can add this "reversal" to my toolchest, and if it's worth it or just clever
[choroba]: It should greatly simplify the parsing code, no flags or additional reading of the next buffer needed
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, that's why I like that approach; it seems even quite obvious in retrospect to me, but many things are in hindsight ;)
