You might want to try with zsh, it's more flexible and convenient to use
than bash. I haven't used it on Windows, but here's a linux example:
$ mkdir -p '/tmp/foo/a bar'
$ F='/tmp/foo/a bar'
$ ls -ld $F
drwxr-xr-x 2 lat zh 4096 Dec 5 11:26 /tmp/foo/a bar
$ touch $F/xyz
$ ls -laF $F
drwxr-xr-x 2 lat zh 4096 Dec 5 11:26 ./
drwxr-xr-x 3 lat zh 4096 Dec 5 11:26 ../
-rw-r--r-- 1 lat zh 0 Dec 5 11:26 xyz
It has gadzillion options to set, so how it works might be function of
what I have set as my zsh environment, but it should be possible.
Real programmers disdain structured programming. Structured
programming is for compulsive, prematurely toilet-trained
neurotics who wear neckties and carefully line up sharpened
pencils on an otherwise uncluttered desk.
