I've been trying to include the quote (") characters and spaces into a tcsh script
variable; for already two days I've been trying various ways doing this to no avail!
I'm about to think that it is impossible.

For example:


set flag="-f "t  ""

This obviously doesn't work because of too many quotes involved; but what does work to achieve this? There are two problems here: 1) flag should contain the two internal quotes of "t " 2) the "t " contains two spaces.

When I use set flag='-f "t "'

the two spaces are automagically (?) reduced to only one space!!

The latter seems to be a general problem:

set flag="f "

wil result in flag containing only "f ".

Any solutions for this problem with quotes and spaces in tcsh script? Or is tcsh not suitable for this kind of things?
