Description Konstantin Starodubtsev 2004-05-07 14:50:55 UTC
smbclient currently uses spaces in directory listing as separators for field 
justification and so there's no way to distinguish "separator" spaces 
and "filename" spaces. In the example below "Ainsi Soit Je " directory is 
actually with one space at the end of dirname. It would be useful if field 
separator character could be specified by some commandline option or just 
replaced to tab.

$ smbclient //t/music -Uguest% -D "Mylene Farmer" -c ls
