escString

String with backslashed escape sequences

A string allowing escape sequences which are replaced according to the context. For node attributes, the substring \N is replaced by the name of the node, and the substring \G by the name of the graph. For graph or cluster attributes, the substring \G is replaced by the name of the graph or cluster. For edge attributes, the substring \E is replaced by the name of the edge, the substring \G is replaced by the name of the graph or cluster, and the substrings \T and \H by the names of the tail and head nodes, respectively. The name of an edge is the string formed from the name of the tail node, the appropriate edge operator (-- or ->) and the name of the head node. In all cases, the substring \L is replaced by the object’s label attribute.

In addition, if the associated attribute is label, headlabel or taillabel, the escape sequences \n, \l and \r divide the label into lines, centered, left-justified, and right-justified, respectively.

Obviously, one can use \\ to get a single backslash. A backslash appearing before any character not listed above is ignored.
