(dequote) refuses to remove quotation marks if
doing so will result in an illegal address. For example, internal
space characters are illegal in addresses:
"a b" becomes→ "a b"
-S switch causes all the quoted space
characters to be changed into a character that you specify just
before the dequoting process:
Kdequote dequote -S+
Here, we specify that quoted strings will have quoted spaces converted into a plus before dequoting. Therefore, the preceding conversion becomes the following:
"a b" becomes→ a+b
As you will see in the reference sections at the end of this chapter,
-S database switch can be used with a few
other types as well.
