[Mingw-msys] Re: Re: Description of MSYS in forthcoming C++ Cookbook, by O'Reilly




Hi

I used to run in linux and cygwin a program like this:

<myprog> --title="This is the title"

but in the msys shell the " seemed to be discarded, thus the previous 
command is interpreted as

<myprog> --title=This is the title

which is wrong...

it works if I do

<myprog> --title=\"This is the title\"

is this the intended behavior?

thanks
	Lorenzo
