Linux version of escapeshellarg().

This is intended to work the same way that escapeshellarg() does on Linux. If we need to escape a string that will be used remotely on a Linux system, then we need our own implementation of escapeshellarg, because the Windows version behaves differently.

Platform-dependent version of escapeshellarg(). Given the target platform, return an appropriately-escaped string. The target platform may be omitted for args that are /known/ to be for the local machine. Use raw to get an unquoted version of the…
drush_startup in includes/
drush_startup is called once, by the Drush "finder" script -- the "drush" script at the Drush root. It finds the correct Drush "wrapper" or "launcher" script to use, and executes it with process replacement.
