Subject: [Caml-list] Filename.quote - again

 Hi!

 I already reported about Filename.quote bug
(or feature?) in current ocaml cvs. I can't
understand the meaning of the following code:

-----------------------
(* $Id: filename.ml,v 1.25 2002/03/12 16:16:56 xleroy Exp $ *)

let generic_quote quotequote s =
  let l = String.length s in
  let b = Buffer.create (l + 20) in
  Buffer.add_char b '\''; (* HERE!!! *)
  for i = 0 to l - 1 do
    if s.[i] = '\''
    then Buffer.add_string b quotequote
    else Buffer.add_char b  s.[i]
  done;
  Buffer.add_char b '\''; (* AND HERE!!!! *)
  Buffer.contents b
---------------------------

 It makes gcc crazy when you passing linking
options with spaces inside (try to compile
camltk418 for example).
