I wanted to supply mplayer with the output of find command as arguments. The error returned showed spliced names of files whenever spaces occurred. I have subdirectories in my /home/my_user_name/Music/ directory, and in them multiple *.oga music files. The actual command that I issued was
mplayer $(find /home/my_user_name/Music/ -name "*.oga")
mplayer started but then was looking for broken file names. I am thinking quoting has to do with it to preserve the filename as one string but different attempts were met with inroads:
mplayer `find /home/my_user_name/Music/ -name "*.oga"`
gave me the same result and
mplayer `"find /home/my_user_name/Music/ -name *.oga"`
complained about wrong mplayer syntax. Thanks in advance for your consideration.
