Re: definevars

I want to use the definevars option setting variable value to
an URL. Ex mhonarc -... -definevars "URL=<A HREF="http://...";>foo </a>"

Of course, chars '=' and '"' make this not simple. Is this impossible
or is there a way to escape those chars ?

Things can get tricky when defining variables on the command-line.

I normally use single quotes around the -definevars string.  This
avoids shell variable interpolation, and double quotes can be used.  If
you need a single quote, just escape it with a backslash.
