Creating ticket with rt client bin/rt


Source : RT-3.6.4 ,
Destination: RT-3.8.5
Both on apache2 and mysql 5

I am unable to create ticket using the RT client when the text (content)
is multi lines (line breaks \n); the command I issue:
/opt/rt3/bin/rt create -t ticket set subject="$subject" set queue="$queue" set requestor="$requestor" set text="$content" set CF-local_ticket="$cf";
it works if $content = 'abcd efg’
but it does n’t if $content = ‘abcd

Is this a limitation within bin/rt or am I doing something wrong

btw correspond/comment work using -m “” , but it seems this flag is not
available with create?
