Re: Maybe offtopic: Dealing with filenames with blanks in a script
I think this should work:
for i in `ls *`; do cat "$i"; done
Hello, I know this is nearly offtopic, but need some help on a simple
one line script as didn't find a simple solution through Google.
I'm trying to manage files that have one or more blanks in their names
(I'm not responsible for them being in such *nice* format...). Let's say

I want a script to do some processing on them, let's simplify with a
for i in `ls *`; do cat $i; done
but this will fail as it consider the blank as a separator for next
Thanx in advance.
