Unix and Spaces
Authored by: BulbVivid on Feb 22, '05 10:14:07PM

When I run the script on anything with spaces (doing google searches for example), nothing happens. With a single word in the clipboard, everything's fine. Anyone know how to make the unix command work with spaces in the search string and the like (I have, well, no skills in this arena)?

Thanks

Put quotes around the words you want it to look up. Everything between the quotes will be treated as one word.

Oops. I forgot to escape the variable inside the script too...and I cannot remember how.
