posix-escape: Quote arguments to be passed through the Unix shell

[ bsd3, library, system ] [ Propose Tags ]

This library provides functions to wrap a String so it can be used within a Unix shell command line, and end up as a single argument to the program invoked.

The module System.Posix.Escape is the safer option. The module System.Posix.Escape.Unicode has extra caveats which are documented with that module.

There is a similar function within the process package as System.Process.Internals.translate.
