find ~ -iname "*.mp3"
I want to find all .mp3 files in my home directory and onwards.
Here are some of the results:
/home/koshy/Music/These Boots Are Made for Walkin Nancy Sinatra.mp3 /home/koshy/Music/alicia keys - Killing me softly (live at Showcase).mp3
Notice how the spaces in them are not escaped?
Once I have the files, I want to copy one or two of them to a new location. But then I was forced to manually change file name, which can be exceedingly tedious:
cp /home/koshy/Music/alicia\ keys\ -\ Killing\ me\ softly\ (live\ at\ Showcase).mp3 .
(Note how the spaces are now escaped)?
Surely there is a better way?
