Paste With Quotes Escaped

Whipped this one up to paste string constants containing quotes into the Script Editor. Can't seem to get it to work generally, though.


set TID to AppleScript's text item delimiters

set myclip to the clipboard as text

if "\"" is in myclip then
   set AppleScript's text item delimiters to "\""
   set t to every text item of myclip
   set AppleScript's text item delimiters to "\\\""
   set myclip to t as text
end if

   tell application "
Script Editor"
       tell front document
           set contents of selection to myclip
       end tell
   end tell
end try

set AppleScript's text item delimiters to TID
