It seems this is due to a bug of (some versions of) yodl. yodl-3.05.00 has this problem, but version 4.04.02 ((Ubuntu 22.04) correctly outputs "couch\\'e". I don't know when this bug was introduced and when it has been fixed. A workaround is to replace either \ or ' by CHAR(). Do I need to push this patch? Or is it enough to use the latest versions of yodl? diff --git a/Etc/FAQ.yo b/Etc/FAQ.yo index 8bd7262fe..8a6895454 100644 --- a/Etc/FAQ.yo +++ b/Etc/FAQ.yo @@ -1055,8 +1055,9 @@ label(31) Other ways of causing word splitting include a judicious use of `eval': + COMMENT(CHAR(39) is a workaround for a bug in some versions of yodl)\ verb( - sentence="Longtemps, je me suis couch\\'e de bonne heure." + sentence="Longtemps, je me suis couch\\CHAR(39)e de bonne heure." eval "words=($sentence)" ) after which $words is an array with the words of $sentence (note
