I have been trying to find a solution to this on the net but with no
I want to get a list of file names from a dir and pass the result to a
du command eg:
puts `du file_name`
but if the filename has single quotes or backslashes in it eg:
puts `du phil'sfile_name` or: puts `du phil\sfile_name`
I have replace them with eg:
puts `du phil\'sfile_name` or: puts `du phil\\sfile_name`
I have tried all sorts of combinations with gsub with no success . .
Is there a solution with gsub or something else?
