    [SOLVED] Use find with directories with spaces for stdout


    I'm trying to change the rights of a number of directories. But some of the directories have spaces in the names. It's only about the directories, not about the files in them.

    So far I came up with the next line:

    chmod g+rw `find * -type d`

    But I notice it cannot handle the dirs with spaces in the names.

    How do I handle these dirs aswell?
