Argv (1.12) *****

If you're trying to write a robust script that uses user-provided filenames, filenames that possibly include quotes/spaces/whatnot, and you pass those on to other utilties, you know that it's important to call system and exec with separate (pre-parsed) arguments.

Unfortunately Windows doesn't provide for this functionality, so this module provides the necessary shell-quoting to make windows as functional as unix. It's really indespensible for cross-platform file utilities.

Argv (1.10) ****

This module answers an important need for those writing scripts with many calls to external programs, and need to support multiple platforms in the same script.
