Why do you insist in using octal escapes instead of using the
corresponding Latin characters literally?  What characters do you
need to replace and why?  I suspect those are raw bytes and not real
characters, but I don't want to guess.

IOW, please give us some more context of your real-life problem.  Then
we might be able to help you more efficiently.
