Shouldn't be too hard.  According to the php docs you just remove backslashes from \", \', and \\.

sub stripslashes() {

    $_ = shift();
    s/\\'/'/;
    s/\\"/"/;
    s/\\\\/\\/;

    return $_;

}

Thanks I kind of guessed it would end up like that.

But that doesn't quite work, you have to do:
s/\\'/'/g;
s/\\"/"/g;
s/\\\\/\\/g;
instead as otherwise it only changes the first occurance.

Thanks for the help

Thanks.  I must have missed the global option...
