Subject RE: How do I escape the " in the replace command?
Date Tue, 24 Jun 2008 19:55:00 GMT
I am trying to execute the command below as part of our weblogic
install.

Yes the string is part of a file.

I have tried using &quote;, \", and \Q \E, but none of these options has
worked.

I was not aware of the regexp option.

Thanks, Jeff


<replace file="${env.DOMAINDIR}/bin/setDomainEnv.${fileext}" 
  token="JAVA_OPTIONS=\"${JAVA_OPTIONS}\""
  value="JAVA_OPTIONS=\"${JAVA_OPTIONS}
-Dweblogic.ProductionModeEnabled=${WEBLOGIC_PRODUCTION_MODE}\""/>

you have to provide more details =

What did you try already ?
Have you tried with regexp ?
Where comes that string from, is it part of a file ?
How does the file look like ?
...

btw. in regular expressions the quote or double quote characters are not
special, no metacharacters like f.e.
[ \ ^ $ . | ? .... etc.
so you don't need to escape them
