Subject [GitHub] ant issue #24: fix 60150 values containing backtick or $ character cause she...

Github user jwadamson commented on the issue:
    I hate dealing with arbitrary arguments. Those regex expressions still don't feel 100%
comfortable to me as to even why they seem to work. Trial and error is not a good way to figure
out patterns. Should have been able to do all the escaping on one line, but something didn't
like how I was adding backtick to the character class.
    So I'm not really sure my new form is functionally different, just trying to match more
closely how the reporter structured his change.
    Also my torture line seems to have been mangled a little in the comment, probably because
markup is doing interpreting as well. The "X" is supposed to be a backtick, but I can't get
markup to render correctly:
    `echo X "-Dfoo=dollar\$_backtick\X_single'_double\"_backslash\\"`
    `ant --execdebug run "-Dfoo=dollar\$_backtick\X_single'_double\"_backslash\\"`
    Also those echo's in the post were for debugging each transform, and I see you figured
that out.
