scripting: quotes within quotes

hi all!

I have to connect to an wireless network with a space in its name (orient 7). Connecting manually with iwconfig is no problem, but how do I setup the wireless script in /etc/conf.d since there are already double quotes?

I tried already:

wlan_wlan0="wlan0 ... "orient 7" ... "
wlan_wlan0='wlan0 ... "orient 7" ... '

but without success sad

Any help would be appreciated!

Re: scripting: quotes within quotes

I think you could do

wlan_wlan0="wlan0 ... 'orient 7' ..."

or

wlan_wlan0="wlan0 ... "orient 7" ... "

But I have not tested either.

Re: scripting: quotes within quotes

Is this a config file or a script you made? If it's a script, it often works fine with mixing single and double quotes.

Re: scripting: quotes within quotes

it's a config file but I suppose these lines are part of a script.

Neither of your suggestions couldn't help me - they are interpreted as:

"orient 7'"

and

"orient 7""

How about a backslash?

wlan_wlan0="wlan0 ... orient 7 ... "
