unescape-bytea STRINGprocedure

This unescapes a bytea result from the server. It is not the inverse of escape-bytea, because string values returned by the server are not escaped for the text-parser. (ie, step one in the encoding process described under escape-bytea is skipped)

The result type of unescape-bytea is a u8vector (in earlier versions, this was a string).
