[VB6] Using VBScript's Escape and UnEscape

Something again from an answer I gave on StackOverflow. This one demonstrates how to use MSScriptControl.ScriptControl to make VBScript's Escape and Unescape functions available to the VB6 programmer.

The best thing would be add MSSCRIPT.OCX to the project, but for the sake of demonstration, I'll use CreateObject instead.

Using the code is easy.

It's that simple. And the technique can be used to get at other VBScript functionality. In fact, .Language can have values other than "VBScript", making it possible to interface to any language with a Windows Scripting Host presence.
