* SECTION:shell
* @title: Shell-related Utilities
* @short_description: shell-like commandline handling
* GLib provides the functions g_shell_quote() and g_shell_unquote()
* to handle shell-like quoting in strings. The function g_shell_parse_argv()
* parses a string similar to the way a POSIX shell (/bin/sh) would.
* Note that string handling in shells has many obscure and historical
* corner-cases which these functions do not necessarily reproduce. They
* are good enough in practice, though.
