The e-TeX primitive
\detokenize, which removes special meaning from TeX code. It functions like a multi-token
\string, decomposing control sequences into an escape character and the name of the sequence, and assigning all characters the category of "other", except for spaces. This does not concern the operation of otherwise removing or altering tokens.
