Shellwords.escape works incorrect under windows

I didn’t found where to post bug reports, so I decide to start new
topic.

Shellwords.escape works incorrect under windows (tested for Windows 7
x64), here is example:

Actual result:

irb(main):001:0> require ‘shellwords’
=> true

irb(main):002:0> echo #{Shellwords.escape( '123>' )} test # should
echo “123> test”, but echo nothing
=> “”

irb(main):003:0> File.read( ‘test’ ) # but writes file “test”
=> “123\\n”

Expected result:

irb(main):001:0> echo 132^> test # the correct escape sequence, echoed
“123> test”
=> “132> test\n”

I didn’t found github or any repository for Shellwords, so I can’t
create issue in right place. Is there any place where issues for
stdlibs/corelibs are located?

You can report issues here: https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/

The code for shellwords is here:
https://github.com/ruby/ruby/blob/trunk/lib/shellwords.rb

Looks like it is explicitly for Bourne shells, with no consideration for
Windows. On the upside, it is just Ruby so should be easy to add what
you need.
