i have a form for exam where the user can enter data in text field with any special character (quote ('), double quote ("), backslash (\))
so i use addslashes in post then i echo the field using stripslashes and everything till this point is OK.
my problem is that the answer may contains a slash in the text field e.g: jo\hn
but when i tried to echo it using stripslashes it echos "john" which is wrong.
i used addslashes and addcslashes to try fix this error but it still exists
i want to add slashes to all special character except the backslashes "'\" .. so the answer to be as it is "jo\hn"
