Thanks for the reply Kevin, but I'm still seeing the same thing although
this method is a bit closer in that
find -type f -print0|xargs -0 -n 1 ls -l will work, but using cp won't. e.g.
if I write a script:
cp $1 /temp/
and call it in place of function_name above it bombs out as cp thinks the
spaces indicated multiple files. Using cp '"'$1'"' /temp/ or various
combinations thereof isn't working either.
maybe I'm staring at the monitor too hard!
