http://www.go2linux.org – I've been using this line to remove spaces from file names in Linux. Usually Windows users like to add spaces in the file names, I prefer dashes (-) or under scores (_) instead, they are easy to manage in the console. I've found this command a long time ago in a forum, and still have it on my personal notes. Here posted for everybody: for file in *; do mv "$file" `echo $file | sed -e 's/ */_/g' -e 's/_-_/-/g'`; done (HowTos)
