It's not bad.  But need a lot of extend work that the old patch don't have.
And this command doesn't need convert a value from 1 type to another.
So I want use the "" way.

If use "" the point the normail string, just the " and \ are the
special characters.
If we want add " in normal string.  Use \"
If we want add / in normal string.  Use \\
Do you think it's OK?
