Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2002-11-13 06:32:06 EST
Problem here is e.g. the " after TRANSLEIS
'TRANSLEIS"', '*', '"286642904"'
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2002-11-13 07:47:46 EST
Well, the original would have been:


The errant code is here (ConfPAP.py):

        var = Conf.Conf.getfields(self)
        if len(var[0]) and var[0][0] in '\'"':
            # found quote; strip from beginning and end
            quote = var[0][0]
            var[0] = var[0][1:]

Obviously this assumes that there are no IFS chars in the quoted field.

Should have used wordexp.. :-P
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2002-11-13 07:59:49 EST
ah oh... code stolen from Conf.py :)
