Don't download to folder with spaces!

Thanks for the heads up! From your post I get the message I have some very bad file / directory naming habits that I need to go through my Finder now and correct. Yipes! I have a ton of files / directories.

Please bear with me as I am new to Unix, but I wish to upgrade my User habits to Unix compatibility. You are saying, if I get your post correctly, that no file or directory name / label should contain spaces; is that correct? Therefore, for example, <MacOSXHints> should be written as indicated without the brackets; is that your message? (As opposed to writing incorrectly as <Mac OS X Hints>).

Are there other common habits that are Unix incompatible? Where would I learn of same, if you have such info, i.e. a site and any other reference material. I have O'Reilly on Learning Unix for Mac OS X and Learning the Unix Operating System, but have not found such hints as you posted.

Thanks for your tip.
