A simple escaped string literal parser using nom

original source

This example shows an example of how to parse an escaped string. The rules for the string are similar to JSON and rust. A string is:

  • Enclosed by double quotes
  • Can contain any raw unescaped code point besides \ and "
  • Matches the following escape sequences: \b, \f, \n, \r, \t, ", \, /
  • Matches code points like Rust: \u{XXXX}, where XXXX can be up to 6 hex characters
  • an escape followed by whitespace consumes all whitespace between the escape and the next non-whitespace character
