Description Kyriakos Sidiropoulos 2003-05-19 09:18:57 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 4.0)

Description of problem:
Ok. This is trivial. :)

%> /usr/bin/soxplay "a path/containing spaces"
sox: error: ...

%> cat /usr/bin/soxplay
#!/ bin/sh

./sox $1 -t .au > dev/audio

Simply double-quoting $1 solves this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sox-12.17.3 (If I recall well)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.%> /usr/bin/soxplay "a path/containing spaces"
sox: error: ...


Actual Results:  sox: error: ...

Expected Results:  Sound??
