whoami works with double quotes in windows instead of single quotes as is told in Bazaar Tutorial.

Asked by Felipe Ureta on 2007-04-03

I'm not sure if this happens because I'm on a windows box right now or if it is because windows is in Spanish.

When I type:
bzr whoami 'Name <email>'

The windows shell returns:
 "El sistema no puede hallar el archivo especificado" meaning the system cannot find the specified file

When I use double quotes instead of single quotes it works all right.

My question is, should I report this as a bug? or to the people in charge of maintaining the Bazaar Tutorial. In the Bazaar tutorial they don't specify that single quotes don't work in a windows shell.

I think you must be talking about the tutorial here: https://help.launchpad.net/FeatureHighlights/EasyBranching. I will see about updating it to use double quotes instead of single quotes. Thanks for letting us know, and good luck creating your branches!

Actually I was referring to this link http://doc.bazaar-vcs.org/bzr.dev/tutorial.htm under "Introducing yourself to Bazaar." BTW right now I'm just learning a bit about Bazaar not starting a project of my own, although I hope to start one once I have the time and once I own a computer :)
