how can this be done?


lets say i am downloading a song it is placed in a directory. its name has lots of spaces in it, how can you have a file that has all of those spaces
Code:
root@marsala incoming # ls
Nirvana - Half The Man I Used To Be.mp3
you would think it would need to be Nirvana-Half_The_Man_I_Used_To_Be.mp3(the way it would need to be saved)

I can play it using this
mplayer N*
or using tab completion. I was just trying to figure out how it is even allowed to save it to the directory in that form.
