How to escape single quote(s) without the use of quotemetaby thanos1983 (Parson)
|on Apr 05, 2019 at 14:26 UTC||Need Help??|
thanos1983 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
This should be straight forward but I am stuck and I have not find a solution to my minor problem. I have written a small script to convert mp4 to mp3 files and I am getting stuck when files contain single quote.
I know that I could use quotemeta but it escapes more characters that what I need. I only need to escape the specific character '.
Sample of code and what I have tried:
I also found this relevant question Escaping single quote in $string. Unfortunately all proposed solutions remove the quote and I want to keep it.
Any hint is appreciated.
