Subject: [PATCH 3/4] lei q: disallow "\n" in argv[] elements
Date: Wed, 10 Nov 2021 10:28:37 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20211110102837.41770-1-e@80x24.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20211110102511.40960-1-e@80x24.org>

I don't expect this to be hit in real-world use via normal
interactive shells.  However, somebody could accidentally add
"\n" in languages (e.g. Perl, C) where it's easy to pass "\n"
in argv[].
