I am trying to execute a command from within a groovy script. For instance
md5sum /home/user/some file name with a space
but any filename with a space is giving an error. I've tried the following without success.
def md5cmd = "md5sum $fileName"
Process proc = md5cmd.execute()
def md5cmd = "md5sum \"$fileName\""
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can pass build up an argument list that will prevent the No such file or directory.
OS is ubuntu linux
I would be greatful for any suggestions

The solution to your problem (at least a solution that works on OS X) is to use a ProcessBuilder:
// This works ProcessBuilder theBuilder = new ProcessBuilder("cat", "Desktop/my test file.txt") theBuilder.start().text // This does not work //"cat Desktop/my test file.txt".execute().text
Please let me know if this works in Ubuntu too.
