xargs doesn't work with .gnome-desktop
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:42:42 EDT
# cd .gnome-desktop
hjl's Home Trash
# ls | xargs ls
xargs: unmatched single quote
ITYM: find -print0 | xargs ls
xargs interprets quotes in its input---it is correct to complain when they
don't match up.
It still doesn't work:
# find -type f -print0 | xargs file
./hjls Home: can't stat `./hjls Home' (No such file or directory).
Use xargs -0.
