Subject [jira] [Created] (IVY-1393) Ant task exec arg value does not quote properly for MSWindows
Date Sun, 09 Dec 2012 18:13:20 GMT
Vincent Belaïche created IVY-1393:

             Summary: Ant task exec arg value does not quote properly for MSWindows
                 Key: IVY-1393
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Ant
         Environment: MSWindows
            Reporter: Vincent Belaïche

I want to pass to some application the following string:\\
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" size="48x48" href="path/to/my/favion.png" />

So I use the following:\\
<exec executable="some_executable.exe">
<arg value="&lt;link rel=&quote;icon&quote; type=&quote;image/png&quote;
size=&quote;48x48&quote; href=&quote;path/to/my/favion.png&quote; /&gt;"/>

However, the application gets this instead:\\
<link rel=icon type=image/png size=48x48 href=path/to/my/favion.png />

Double quotes were stripped by MSWindows because they were not properly escaped in the command
line by Ant.

I wrote a piece of code to do escaping of double quotes properly, and I will try to attach
it to the issue later on if I can.
