What is the correct way to process files

view story

http://www.unix.com – Is there a general way I can use so as to process paths/files from your terminal without the need to backslash things? Till recently I used to use Code: touch "file_here" but it does not work if file_here contains any of the characters ` and ", I still need to backslash them if I want to make the command work. Is there any workaround where backslashing characters are not needed?:confused: (HowTos)
