Commit d0ea45bf authored by Elia Pinto's avatar Elia Pinto Committed by Junio C Hamano use the $( ... ) construct for command substitution

The Git CodingGuidelines prefer the $(...) construct for command
substitution instead of using the backquotes `...`.

The backquoted form is the traditional method for command
substitution, and is supported by POSIX.  However, all but the
simplest uses become complicated quickly.  In particular, embedded
command substitutions and/or the use of double quotes require
careful escaping with the backslash character.

The patch was generated by:

for _f in $(find . -name "*.sh")
   sed -i 's@`\(.*\)`@$(\1)@g' ${_f}

and then carefully proof-read.
