Re^3: Splitting up quoted/escaped command line arguments
in thread Splitting up quoted/escaped command line arguments
Yes, I'm keenly aware that a shell is going to be invoked on the remote side. That's fine. I need to avoid it on the local machine. Why do you say that these commands won't work unless passed to a shell vs calling ssh directly? The perldocs don't seem to agree with your assertion.
A mistake can be valuable or costly, depending on how faithfully you pursue correction
