in thread Find and replace MD5 hash from file

I'm saying I have domain knowledge of the format, and that it never contains quotes.

Thanks for the info.

also gave you a URL providing the makepasswd code as evidence. Have you read that?

Why would I? It wouldn't support or contradict anything you or I said.

    Your approach is absolutely fine in a code library providing the most generalisable possible solution for escaping arbitrary shell commands. There is nothing wrong with (the factual content of) your statements. All I am saying here is that in this specific case, where we have definitive evidence (even if you do not wish to examine that evidence) that quotes are never present, that a simpler approach is sufficient.

      That's what you are saying *now*, and I don't have a problem with that. That's why I updated Re^2 in response to Re^7. Before Re^7, there was no mention of that.
