Subject: Wishlist: escape (or quote or normalize) filenames
Download (untitled) / with headers

Hi. It would be nice if one could take a raw filename e.g. "foo's bar.baz" and have it escaped (or quoted or normalized) so that it can be accessed without tears on various platforms e.g. on Unix "foo\'s\ bar.baz". i.e. a kind of platform-specific quotemeta() for filenames. See http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=37347 chocolateboy.

Your use case seems to be for passing the filename as an argument when launching an external command using a shell. String::ShellQuote exists, but unfortunately it is not cross-platform. https://metacpan.org/module/String::ShellQuote -- Olivier Mengué - http://search.cpan.org/~dolmen/ http://github.com/dolmen/
