                                string1 string2 integer escapedstring substring2

This operator copies string1 into the initial substring of string2 , escaping some or all of the characters such that the string can be reinterpreted by the PostScript interpreter correctly. The length of string2 must be at least as long as necessary to hold the string after it has been escaped. The remaining elements of string2 are unaffected. In the first form, only the (, ) , and \ characters are escaped. In the second form, an integer value of 7 or 8 will be accepted to indicate that the substring should be 7 or 8 -bit clean, as defined for the %%DocumentData : comment in The Adobe document PostScript Language Document Structuring Conventions Specification Version 3.0.
