Subject: single_quote patch
Date: Fri, 29 Jan 2021 22:56:37 +0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <695d664f-98dc-17be-9bec-55250391e296@simtreas.ru> (raw)


I rewrote (next version vs send to Herbert) single_quote()

for do not confusing in debug mode, more funny

showvars and showalias and allow the printf "%q" directive.

Before patch

$ ./dash- -x

$ foo () { local a=" b"; ls "$1"; [ -z "$1" ]; }

$ c=" x" foo

+ c= x foo

+ local a= b

+ ls

ls: cannot access '': No such file or directory

+ [ -z  ]

After patch

$ ./dash- -x

$ foo () { local a=" b"; ls "$1"; [ -z "$1" ]; }

$ c=" x" foo

+ c=' x' foo

+ local a=' b'

+ ls ''

ls: cannot access '': No such file or directory

+ '[' -z '' ']'

Before patch
$ a= b="a'b" c=a/b

+ a= b=a'b c=a/b

$ set +x; set | grep '^[abc]='




$ printf "%q\n" "a'b"

dash: 32: printf: %q: invalid directive

After patch

$ a= b="a'b" c=a/b

+ a= b="a'b" c=a/b

$ set +x; set | grep '^[abc]='




$ printf "%q\n" "a.b" "a'b"
