Dear all,

please review and sponsor this change.

RFE: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8049300

There are several ways in which paths can contain spaces (quoting with "" or '', or escaping). The implementation of the $EXEC command would tokenise using a plain StringTokenizer, which splits a string at space characters regardless of quoting. The new implementation employs a StreamTokenizer and some extra logic to handle escaped spaces.
