       Net::OpenSSH::ShellQuoter::MSCmd - Quoter for Windows cmd.exe


       This quoter is intended for interaction with SSH servers running on Windows which invoke
       the requested commands through the "cmd.exe" shell.

       Because of "cmd.exe" not doing wildcard expansion (on Windows this task is left to the
       final command), glob quoting just quotes everything.

       Some Windows servers use "Win32::CreateProcess" to run the "cmd.exe" shell which runs the
       requested command. In that case, both the "MSCmd" and "MSWin" quoters have to be chained
       (and BTW, order matters):

          $ssh = Net::OpenSSH->new(...,
                                   remote_shell => 'MSCmd,MSWin');

       Actually, "cmd.exe" may require not quoting at all when the requested command is a builtin
       (for instance, "echo").
