NAME
CPAN::HandleConfig - internal configuration handling for CPAN.pm "CLASS->safe_quote ITEM" Quotes an item to become safe against spaces in shell interpolation. An item is enclosed in double quotes if: - the item contains spaces in the middle - the item does not start with a quote This happens to avoid shell interpolation problems when whitespace is present in directory names. This method uses "commands_quote" to determine the correct quote. If "commands_quote" is a space, no quoting will take place. if it starts and ends with the same quote character: leave it as it is if it contains no whitespace: leave it as it is if it contains whitespace, then if it contains quotes: better leave it as it is else: quote it with the correct quote type for the box we're on
