(This is probably a FAQ, and I'll take a pointer (or even the magic words to identify the problem) instead of an answer.) Let's suppose I have a file FILE, with contents:
foo bar grill baz If I do "cat FILE", everything comes out fine. If, however, I write a script: #!/bin/sh for i in `cat FILE` do . . . . done $i is set to foo bar grill baz Is there a way within the script - or, failing that, by modifying FILE - to not break at the whitespace?
