I think you mean pipe.quote in your message, not pipe.call. The subject looks correct.

I'm not sure pipes is the best place for this, but I agree it should probably be documented in older versions. It seems to me we've had this discussion before about quoting command lines, how it applies differently between Windows and various shells, and which functions to expose. But having said that, I can't find a previous issue that discusses it.

Not the least of my concerns is that pipes says it's available on Unix systems, despite the fact that I have it on a Windows machine. And I might need the functionality of passing a bash command from a Windows machine to a Unix machine, so we definitely need this cross platform.
