Description Ed McKenzie 2001-08-21 02:10:14 UTC
Files with spaces and other escaped characters don't do correct escaping
when dragged from the file manager into the Terminal.  This may be a
terminal bug, as unescaped characters might be desirable in other places.

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-02-28 20:01:25 UTC
What do you mean by "not escaped properly" - you want filenames dragged to the
terminal to be escaped for the shell? What if people are running mc or tcsh
instead of bash for example?

Comment 2 Ed McKenzie 2002-02-28 20:45:15 UTC
Good call.  I hadn't really considered that, though the examples you cite would work with 

bash-style escaping in most cases.
