in thread System command using array and pipe

I prefer

my ($passwd_lit, $path_lit) = map text_to_shell_lit, $passwd, $path; system("mysqldump --add-drop-table -uroot -p$passwd_lit mydatabase | g +zip -9c > $path_lit");
to
my $passwd_lit = $passwd; my $path_lit = $path; s#'#'\\''#g for $passwd_lit, $path_lit; system("mysqldump --add-drop-table -uroot -p'$passwd_lit' mydatabase | + gzip -9c > '$path_lit'");

but to each his own.

By the way, your quoting was buggy. "\" is not special in sh single-quoted literals.
