terminal in osx - Mac Applications & Software

How do I make the space character accepted by the terminal? I got some files listed that have spaces in them. Ex. "pirate20.zip copy" I can't figure out how to put the space in between ".zip" and "copy" so the terminal will accept my command. Thanks in advance. --...

    Default terminal in osx

    How do I make the space character accepted by the terminal?

    I got some files listed that have spaces in them.
    Ex. "pirate20.zip copy"

    I can't figure out how to put the space in between ".zip" and "copy"
    so the terminal will accept my command.

    Thanks in advance.

    Just like you did above - put it in quotes.

    You quote it. Given a file called 'a b' (a/space/b):

    $ ls 'a b'
    $ ls "a b"
    $ ls a\ b

    A backslash quotes the next character.

    Or, just escape the space with a backslash. You could type it as
    "pirate20.zip\ copy" without the quotes.
