Description

SkipComments examines the null-terminated string in P and skips any SQL comment or string literal found at the start. It returns P the first non-comment or non-string literal position. The EscapeSlash parameter determines whether the backslash character (\) functions as an escape character (i.e. the following character is not considered a delimiter). EscapeRepeat must be set to True if the quote character is repeated to indicate itself.

The function returns True if a comment was found and skipped, False otherwise.

Errors

No checks are done on the validity of P.
