in reply to Windows quoting

Instead of trying to quote $some_argument, can you pass it as an argument?
system("x.bat", $some_argument);
and then reference it in your batch script as %1 (or however batch scripts do this.)

    No, because I do not call the batch file. A different process on a different machine calls the batch file, and it expects only a batch file, which will be invoked without parameters.
