How do I keep the command line from eating the backslashes?by Anonymous Monk
|on Feb 11, 2005 at 21:16 UTC||Need Help??|
Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Silly easy novice question: How do I preserve \" passed in on the commandline?
i.e: foo.pl -bar=\"donteatem\"
I get $ARGV as -bar="donteatem", where i really do want to keep the backslashes.
Thanks in advance.
