Subject [jira] [Commented] (IVY-1393) Ant task exec arg value does not quote properly for MSWindows
Date Sun, 09 Dec 2012 18:53:21 GMT


Vincent Belaïche commented on IVY-1393:

I could not find how to attach the piece of Java code providing proper double quote escaping
for Windows, so I placed it on my page [here|].

Furthermore, in the issue creation form I did not filled the version entry because my ant
version is 

{{Apache Ant version 1.8.0 compiled on February  2010}}

which I could not find in the proposed list of versions.

(?) I am wondering now whether I submitted the issue to the right project...

> <link rel="icon" type="image/png" size="48x48" href="path/to/my/favion.png" />
> {noformat}
> So I use the following:\\
> {noformat} 
> <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;"/>
> </exec>
> {noformat}
> However, the application gets this instead:\\
> {noformat}
> <link rel=icon type=image/png size=48x48 href=path/to/my/favion.png />
> {noformat}
> 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.
