7 * any single quote is replaced with '\'', any exclamation point
8 * is replaced with '\!', and the whole thing is enclosed in a
9 * single quote pair.

11 * For example, if you are passing the result to system() as an
12 * argument:
13 *
14 * sprintf(cmd, "foobar %s %s", sq_quote(arg0), sq_quote(arg1))
15 *
16 * would be appropriate. If the system() is going to call ssh to
17 * run the command on the other side:
18 *
19 * sprintf(cmd, "git-diff-tree %s %s", sq_quote(arg0), sq_quote(arg1));
20 * sprintf(rcmd, "ssh %s %s", sq_quote(host), sq_quote(cmd));
21 *
22 * Note that the above examples leak memory! Remember to free result from
23 * sq_quote() in a real application.

25 * sq_quote_buf() writes to an existing buffer of specified size; it
26 * will return the number of characters that would have been written
27 * excluding the final null regardless of the buffer size.
