Detailed steps to reproduce the problem:
- touch ~/"a'b"
- Drag and drop the file into iterm2
- Hit enter, notice the unmatched quote
What happened: The following appeared in the terminal: '/Users/zwimer/Desktop/a'b' Notice you cannot escape single quotes within single quotes, so ' fails, leading to an unmatched quote. This happens in both zsh and bash.
What should have happened: /Users/zwimer/Desktop/a'b or "/Users/zwimer/Desktop/a'b"
