Modify the script

Modify the script

The student is to modify the script student example p3 following the instructions in the script.
The purpose of this script is to change the name of files/directories with spaces in the name to have a dash(-). So if a file/directory were named "A B", the new name would be A-B. The script will work on a directory specified on the command line and replace the spaces in the names for all files/directories underneath that directory.
The options to the script are as follows:
-f the -f says to only rename files
-d the -d says to only rename directories
Both -d and and -f may be specifed.
the name of the directory that you will be processing.
For example:
Given the following
$ ls
C D/ dirs.tar fix-spaces*
And the directory "C D" contained the following structure
./C D
./C D/E F
./C D/E F/G H
./C D/E F/G H/J K
./C D/E F/G H/J K/a b
./C D/E F/G H/a b
./C D/E F/a b
./C D/a b
After the script was run,
fix-space -f -d "C D"
the directory structure would be as follows:
C-D
C-D/E-F
C-D/E-F/G-H
C-D/E-F/G-H/a-b
C-D/E-F/G-H/J----K
C-D/E-F/G-H/J----K/a-b
C-D/E-F/a-b
C-D/a-b
Here is a copy of the script - it is alos as an attachment in both UNIX and Windows format.
