[Sidefx-houdini-list] help unix command

I was wondering if somebody could help me with this:
I'm on linux and would like to execute a shell command from inside houdini.
the shell command must read publish3d -d path -e user -g 3R -c
'comment bla bla bla'
This is part of the hscript I wrote:
set str = "rsh fruit-master publish3d -d
"$strShotPath"/outputs/renders/"$strRFilename" -e "$strLogin" -g 3R -c
unfortunately the comment parameter is not transferred because it gets
truncated at the ' (single quote) position.
I tried replacing ' with \' , " and \" unsuccessfully.
My current workaround is to edit the comment string and replace all
spaces with underscore, and sending the comment as one word (this
doesn't require single quotes).
