Issue #2016 has been updated by Vladimir Sizikov.


In JRuby world, we don't do that additional special handling of arguments on Windows, and people keep asking about non-working single-quotes and it *is* confusing, when jruby -e "puts 5" works, but jruby -e 'puts 5 ' doesn't work on Windows. So it seems to me that MRI does the right thing adding that extra-processing of the arguments so that the very same command line would work on Unixes and Windows...
