Escapes an array so output is valid shell code
esccli takes an array and escapes any characters that might cause problems when pasted back into the terminal. Typically you'd want to use this against command parameters.
<stdin> -> esccli -> <stdout> esccli @array -> <stdout>
As a method
» alias foobar=out 'foo$b@r' » alias -> [foobar] [ "out", "foo$b@r" ] » alias -> [foobar] -> esccli out foo\$b\@r
As a function
» alias -> [foobar] -> set: fb » $fb ["out","foo$b@r"] » esccli: @fb out foo\$b\@r
[(index): Outputs an element from an array, map or table
alias: Create an alias for a command
escape: Escape or unescape input
eschtml: Encode or decodes text for HTML
escurl: Encode or decodes text for the URL
out: Print a string to the STDOUT with a trailing new line character
