I'd like to find some file with
mdfind and move it to another directory. So I tried like below but it makes an error caused by the space in the path.
> mdfind somefile.numbers /Users/hugh/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~Numbers/Documents/somefile.numbers > mv $(!!) ~/Documents/ mv: rename /Users/hugh/Library/Mobile to /Users/hugh/Documents/Mobile: No such file or directory mv: rename Documents/com~apple~Numbers/Documents/somefile.numbers to /Users/hugh/Documents/somefile.numbers: No such file or directory
So I tried to escape the space with
printf %q, but it escapes everything.
> mv $(printf %q $(mdfind somefile.numbers)) ~/Documents/ mv: rename /Users/hugh/Library/MobileDocuments/com\~apple\~Numbers/Documents/somefile.numbers to /Users/hugh/Documents/somefile.numbers: No such file or directory
There must be a good way to handle this but I cannot find one. Any ideas?
