Re: Help with files and spaces with shell script

You're right ctim eis not creation but is close enough for my script

  find /myth/recordings/ -maxdepth 1 -name \*.mpg -ctime -1 ! -mtime -1 -print
I did not know you could use the ! that saves one line of code ;o)

My script so far looks like this,can someone help me on one issue.

If a file name has a space then the script goes wrong as it interprets
each word as a file, I thought that putting the variable into quotes
would fix this but it did not, what is the answer please.

for i in `find /myth/recordings/ -maxdepth 1 -name \*.mpg -ctime -1 !
-mmin -1 -print`
 do
   /usr/bin/mencoder "$i" -ovc xvid -oac mp3lame -xvidencopts
bitrate=800 -o $TMP/tmp.mpg > $TPM/enc_errors 2>&1 && cp -fv
$TMP/tmp.mpg "$i"
 done

Thanks


Change IFS to nothing (<cr>) before the call to 'for in find...'

e.g;

IFS=
for i in `find...
