Subject: w32-quote-process-args

User-agent: Gnus/5.0808 (Gnus v5.8.8) Emacs/21.1

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i386-mingw-nt4.0.1381)
 of 2001-10-29 on JCASADONTE
configured using `configure --with-gcc (2.95)'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: ENU
  locale-coding-system: iso-latin-1
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:







Was there some changed behavior with this variable in Emacs 21?

In Emacs 21, if I run "emacs -q" and evaluate the following form

   (call-process "cleartool" nil t nil
                 "desc"
                 "-fmt"
                 "[nil \\\"%m\\\" \\\"%f\\\" \\\"%Rf\\\" \\\"%Sn\\\" 
\\\"%PSn\\\" \\\"%On\\\" \\\"%u\\\" \\\"%Nd\\\" nil nil nil\\n%c"
                 "l:\\util\\Util.java")

I get expected the results:

   [nil "version" "" "" "\main\64" "\main\63" 
"b0acf0fa.eff111d5.bf0d.00:01:03:25:1d:37" "pfonz" "20020109.085112" nil nil nil
   Merge the latest into 3.1

If I then evaluate:

   (setq w32-quote-process-args ?\")

and re-evaluate the first one, I get:

   cleartool: Error: Unable to access "\%f\": No such file or directory.
   cleartool: Error: Unable to access "\%Rf\": No such file or directory.
   cleartool: Error: Unable to access "\%Sn\": No such file or directory.
   cleartool: Error: Unable to access "\%PSn\": No such file or directory.
   cleartool: Error: Unable to access "\%On\": No such file or directory.
   cleartool: Error: Unable to access "\%u\": No such file or directory.
   cleartool: Error: Unable to access "\%Nd\": No such file or directory.
   cleartool: Error: Unable to access "nil": No such file or directory.
   cleartool: Error: Unable to access "nil": No such file or directory.
   cleartool: Error: Unable to access "nil\\n%c l:\util\Util.java": Invalid 
argument.

Running this same test on 20.7.1 (with -q) produced the correct
results regardless of the value of w32-quote-process-args.

I searched thru the NEWS file and did not see anything regarding this.
