See exec always invokes the shell? win32, the situation is brainfuck-cubed

The way I get around it, is to always pretend like I'm typing in cmd.exe

#!/usr/bin/perl -- use strict; use warnings; if( @ARGV ){ print join "\n", map({"( $_ )"} @ARGV), "\n"; } else { my $txt = '/w my > text >= [with] \ symbols " /wabc/def (xyz)'; my( @args ) = win32_quote( 'perl', __FILE__, $txt, 'ARG2', ); print "YOU CAN TYPE THIS AT THE cmd.exe PROMPT\n @args\n\n"; ## command.com doesn't like it (it wants "perl" to be perl) ## i don't know what powershell does :) system @args; } sub win32_quote { my( @args ) = @_; s~ ( [%><|&^"] ) ~ { '%' => '^%', '>' => '^>', '<' => '^<', '"' => '\\"', '&' => '^&', '|' => '^|', }->{$1} ~gex for @args; $_=qq["$_"] for @args; return @args; } __END__ D:\>perl win32.quote.pl YOU CAN TYPE THIS AT THE cmd.exe PROMPT "perl" "win32.quote.pl" "/w my ^> text ^>= [with] \ symbols \" /wab +c/def (xyz)" "ARG2" ( /w my ^> text ^>= [with] \ symbols " /wabc/def (xyz) ) ( ARG2 ) D:\>"perl" "win32.quote.pl" "/w my ^> text ^>= [with] \ symbols \" /wa +bc/def (xyz)" "ARG2" ( /w my ^> text ^>= [with] \ symbols " /wabc/def (xyz) ) ( ARG2 )
