Command line arguments containing * (asterisk) not passed correctly

    Details

      Description

      Groovy does weird things with command line arguments containing *. Makes it very difficult to pass in things like file specs, ant specs and regex expresssions!!! A simple program that prints out the length of the args parameter passed into main procedure - a few are correct but most are wrong:

      >groovy fail test
      args length: 1
      
      >groovy fail *
      args length: 3
      
      >groovy fail **
      args length: 0
      
      >groovy fail "**"
      args length: 0
      
      >groovy fail "test"  " *"
      args length: 2
      
      >groovy fail "test"  "*"
      args length: 1
      
      >groovy fail "test   *"
      args length: 1
      
      >groovy fail "*test*"
      args length: 0
      
      >groovy fail "*test*"
      args length: 0
      
      >groovy fail " *test*"
      args length: 1
