Thread: system("") issue. I need to use a "" in the ""

  1. #1

    Default system("") issue. I need to use a "" in the ""

    Here is my problem.
    Im OK at bash scripting:

    I want to use QT to hide the scripting.
    I want to run a bash script mysql -uuser -ppass dbname -e " what ever my script is "
    so it comes out like system("mysql -uuser -ppass dbname -e " what ever my script is ";");

    Double quoting seems to throw QT for a loop.
    Is there a work around for this?
    I would just like to use a bash call and be done with it since I know very little QT C++ scripting, but trying to learn.

    Not looking forward to using a sql connection inside the db since I have to:
    system("NUMBER=$(tac file | grep -Eo "item I dont want" -m 1 | sed 's/item I dont want/ /')")

    And use that as a parameter in the mysql script

    QT is quicktime.

    Qt is Qt.

    in c++, strings can contain " easily, e.g.

    Qt Code:
    1. char* example = "this is an \"example\"";
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    If you have a problem, CUT and PASTE your code. Do not retype or simplify it. Give a COMPLETE and COMPILABLE example of your problem. Otherwise we are all guessing the problem from a fabrication where relevant details are often missing.
