    bash

    Utilities for using bash from node.js.

    API

    bash.escape(parameter)

    Escapes the given parameter for bash. This is done by escaping all non alpha-numeric / dash characters with a backslash.

    Example:

    > bash.escape('hello world');
    'Hello\\ World'

    bash.args(options, prefix, suffix)

    Takes a list of options and turns them into an arguments string common to most *nix programs.

    Objects are turned into arguments:

    > bash.args({a: 1, b: 2}, '--', '=');
    '--a=1 --b=2'

    Values are escaped:

    > bash.args({foo: 'hi you'}, '--', '=');
    '--foo=hi\\ you'

    Array values turn into multiple arguments:

    > bash.args({a: [1, 2]}, '--', '=');
    '--a=1 --a=2'

    null / true values turn into flags:

    > bash.args({a: true, b: null}, '--', '=');
    '--a --b'

    Alternate suffix / prefix settings:

    > bash.args({a: 1, b: 2}, '-', ' ');
    '-a 1 -b 2'

    options can be an array as well:

    > bash.args([{a: 1}, {a: 2, b: 3}] '-', ' ');
    '-a 1 -a 2 -b 3'
