Subject: [PATCH v4 2/7] trace: avoid unnecessary quoting
Date: Sat, 13 Jan 2018 13:49:44 +0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180113064949.6043-3-pclouds@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180113064949.6043-1-pclouds@gmail.com>

From: Jeff King <peff@peff.net>

Trace output which contains arbitrary strings (e.g., the
arguments to commands which we are running) is always passed
through sq_quote_buf(). That function always adds
single-quotes, even if the output consists of vanilla
characters. This can make the output a bit hard to read.

Let's avoid the quoting if there are no characters which a
shell would interpret. Trace output doesn't necessarily need
to be shell-compatible, but:

  - the shell language is a good ballpark for what humans
    consider readable (well, humans versed in command line
    tools)

  - the run_command bits can be cut-and-pasted to a shell,
    and we'll keep that property

  - it covers any cases which would make the output
    visually ambiguous (e.g., embedded whitespace or quotes)
