How do I unescape a string?

Current Perl documentation can be found at perldoc.perl.org.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

It depends just what you mean by ``escape''. URL escapes are dealt with in the perlfaq9 manpage. Shell escapes with the backslash (\) character are removed with:

    s/\\(.)/$1/g;

This won't expand "\n" or "\t" or any other special escapes.

[choroba]: Good morning!
[Corion]: I have a rough plan to release an ImageNet classifier in Perl (well, using pretrained data, but still a nice toy)
Discipulus is going mad with the new win10 client.. tried mv Cortana /dev/null but no succes
[Corion]: Ouch - another pretrained set is available, using images from IMDB and Wikipedia. So I expect interesting results for non-PR images where people are pictured that are not made up
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah, from my investigations, you can somewhat silence+disable Cortana, but some services of it remain always running unfortunately. What a waste of resources :-/
[Corion]: I hope you had a good weekend still ;)
choroba had a workshop with the band
[choroba]: which counts as a good weekend
