Creating strings with double- and single-quotes

Recommended Posts

Dave in PNG

I'm using AutoIt3 to Run() a program (ImageMagick) that has some fairly complex command line parameters. Here is a partial example of a command line:

-draw 'text 100,100 "Works like magick!"'

If I'm trying to build the command line in a string, I wind up with something really cumbersome like:

$cmdline = "-draw 'text 100,100 " & '"Works like magick!"' & "'"

If there a better way to do this?

Thanks

Dave

DUH!!! Read the manual, Dave.

$cmdline = "-draw 'text 100,100 ""Works like magick!""'"
