comment for loop splits double quoted word into two words if there is a space in between
@jm666 It could be an XY-problem. I am keeping this question as is in its puzzle-with-limitations form (the Y problem). I have now asked my actual problem (the X problem) here: stackoverflow.com/q/26008487/1175080

comment for loop splits double quoted word into two words if there is a space in between
@chepner The double quotes should not be part of the value of i. The first value of i should be "foo bar". I want the output to be exactly as specified in the first code block in the question.

@sp2danny Your comment was very helpful. Why don't you post it as a separate answer so that I can accept it and close this question?
