I am running into a problem with the space character in filenames. For instance, If I want to run the script;
for x in `ls` do echo $x done then filenames that have a space in them ie: "john smith.jpg" are processed by my script as two names, "john" and "smith.jpg". What is the best way to deal with this type of space problem in the shell? I know that file names in quotes solves some problems but I can't tranfer that to my script. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
