/**
 * @defgroup filter_example Example: Filter
 * @ingroup examples
 * @{
 * Demonstrates the creation of filters.

 * This is an example outlining how a module can be used to define a filter
 * to be run on user-submitted content before it is output to the browser.
 *
 * To show all the capabilities of the filter system, we will define two filters
 * in this module. One will substitute the string "foo" with an
 * administratively-defined replacement string. The other will find a custom
 * XML tag, <time />, and replace it by the current time.
 *
 * Foo filter
 *
 * Drupal has several content formats (they are not filters), and in our example
 * the foo replacement can be configured for each one of them, allowing an html
 * or php replacement, so the module includes a settings callback, with options
 * to configure that replacements. Also, a Tips callback will help showing the
 * current replacement for the content type being edited.
 *
 * Time filter.
 *
 * This filter is a little trickier to implement than the previous one.
 * Since the input involves special HTML characters (< and >) we have to
 * run the filter before HTML is escaped/stripped by other filters. But
 * we want to use HTML in our result as well, and so if we run this filter
 * first our replacement string could be escaped or stripped. The solution
 * is to use the "prepare" operation to escape the special characters, and
 * to later replace our escaped version in the "process" step.

 * foo_filter is more complex, including its own settings and inline tips.
