Hello,

Hold on... Are you saying you want to get rid of everything in quotes? I can not quite understand your explanation here... Could you possibly read over what you said, and edit your post so it makes more sense?

Cheers,

Josh

Well, if you don't want the quotes around the filenames just skip the -Q flag..

or use "$ ls -al"

or "ls -Q | sed 's/"//g'"

More information might be required as the parsing of ls in a script is generally a bad idea, see here.
