> ### Script 3 (works as expected)

If by "works as expected" you mean that it excludes a file whose name is a
single apostrophe whose grandparent directory also has a name of a single
apostrophe.  (That's certainly what I expect it to do, and what it actually does
too.)  Maybe you meant to write this VAL assignment?


Keep in mind that shell-special characters are not re-parsed when expanding
variables (which would be very bad) unless you use eval.  It may also help to
note that writing --exclude='foo' is exactly the same as writing '--exclude=foo'
(it's just that the former seems more natural to most people), so there's no
need for all the extra quotes in what you're trying to do -- just quote the
values when assigning them to a variable and they'll be fine.
