''-S'' '''


Space replacement character V8.8 and above

The dequote type (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"

The -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, this -S database switch can be used with a few other types as well.
