in thread How to escape single quote(s) without the use of quotemeta

what about the backslash, do you really want quotemetas behavior?

DB<26> x q(It's\ ) 0 'It\'s\\ ' DB<27> x quotemeta q(It's\ ) 0 'It\\\'s\\\\\\ ' ... DB<29> x quotemeta q(It's\x) 0 'It\\\'s\\\\x'

FWIW you can write a regex which consumes every paired backslash in an or'ed condition before replacing single quotes/backslashes.

But a real test-cases are imperative here.

update

this shows that the input format should be well defined too

DB<37> dd quotemeta q(It's\x\\) "It\\'s\\\\x\\\\"
