I had a recent question posted about accessing files from windows.....heres the follow-up....

I have noticed while navigating the windows files in a terminal (aterm), there are some windows files/directories that contain whitespace (i.e. "Documents and Settings").....when navigating through these files via command-line, it blows up at you because of the whitespace.....is there any way around this???

cheers

put the file/dir names in quotes

"/mnt/home/My Documents/My Pictures/Shed in Field.jpg"

or use \ before each space character

/mnt/home/My\ Documents/My\ Pictures/Shed\ in\ Field.jpg

when you use the command line, you can type a few characters, then press the tab key - the shell will try to complete the file name, using \ to escape the space characters
