I'd say the resulting sentence is somehow incorrect, but not more than the previous one (both say "if ..." without really telling what the condition was). >> If an `LF`, backslash or double quote must be encoded > ^ > missing comma as list delimiter Google tells me that my version was UK-correct but not US-correct. As french, I have no opinion on the subject, I take yours ;-). How about this: A path can use the C-style string quoting (this is accepted in all cases and mandatory if the filename starts with double quote or contains `LF`). In C-style quoting, `LF`, backslash, and double quote characters must be escaped by preceding them with a backslash. Also, the complete name should be surrounded with double quotes (e.g. `"path/with\n, \\ and \" in it"`). This should be technically correct, and "this is accepted in all cases" should encourrage people to use it. -- Matthieu Moy http://www-verimag.imag.fr/~moy/ -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
