Subject Re: [commons-exec] API discussion: Quoting of arguments: why is it enabled by default?
Date Tue, 17 Feb 2009 21:59:43 GMT
Hi Sami,

not sure that I understand the problem

+) commons-exec is basically Ant code so it does the all the things Ant
is doing, e.g. hard-to-understand quoting
+) inside the code it is pretty hard to distinguish between a file name
and a funny argument string (both containing spaces) so we assume that
this is a file name which need quoting
+) since quoting seems to be the #1 topic - please check
http://commons.apache.org/exec/faq.html#complex-quoting

So I suggest

+) have a look if you could solve your problem by avoiding a single
command line
+) describe your problems a bit more detailed

Cheers,

Siegfried Goeschl
