i've ask ppl in irc EFnet #php.
none of them like runtime magic quote.

i would like to have the following feature:

-> sprintf("%S", $string);

which is the same function as addslashes($string);

and i can do as the following:

-> mysql_query(sprintf("UPDATE mytable SET abc='%S'", $string));

i think this would make a great change to those php-sql scripts

notice that it's capital "%S" not "%s"
or any other unused char

no one take care of the FEATUREs?

i've forgot sth.
not only addslashes should be supported in sprintf
and also preg_quote and so on, including all "slashes"/"quote" function

and will be nice if some other useful STRING function added into sprintf

btw: i've take a look at the source code, addslashes() also invoke sprintf, don't make it infinite nested :)
