Subject HTML in exec arguments
Date Tue, 24 Oct 2000 18:27:12 GMT
I'm doing builds that involve external execs with HTML in the arguments,
and the command lines are looking really, really ugly.  Ergo, if I want
to say

        <title>"What does ...

the html argument looks like
"&lt;html&gt;&lt;head&gt;&lt;title&gt;&quot;What does ..."  This
can be
partially dealt with by adding whitespace, but material with a lot of
metacharacters that have to be quoted XML-style still faces a
comprehensibility obstacle.

Is there any way around this besides putting the HTML in another file
that won't have to be quoted?
