OK so if the line in the file looks like this:

/home/user/kelly.mpg#volume:100

then

Code:
eval xine ${LINE}
will work.

The advantage of splitting the line into $LINE and $VOL actually has the benefit of not having to put \ in front of spaces for file names that have spaces in the text file. So splitting could still be an attractive option. But theoretically what I am wanting to do is almost reality now.

Yeah I tried:

Code:
eval xine --enqueue ${LINE}
and that works with a line from the file that looks like this:

/home/user/kelly.mpg#volume:100

which is cool, and essentially allows me to get something working.


However, I have discovered that if I do go about and split the information from the line, then it will handle spaces in filenames much better. I discovered this from your "set x" idea for testing earlier.

Edit: I am happy to leave the --enqueue out of the text file lines and just specify the --enqueue option in my script. This is more efficient I think, because when the text file has one hundred entries, this will save having --enqueue in there 100 times.
