Subject: Open .opi filenames with spaces from command line?

Hello.

According to:

  http://cs-studio.sourceforge.net/docbook/ch29.html

the way to open a .opi file from the command line is:

===
$ css --launcher.openFile some_file.opi
===

Will that work if the .opi file has a space in its name?

For example:

===
$ css --launcher.openFile 'some file.opi'
===

I'm asking because I looked at the "--launcher.openFile" option
documentation at:

  https://help.eclipse.org/neon/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.platform.doc.isv%2Freference%2Fmisc%2Fruntime-options.html

and it says:

  --launcher.openFile <space separated list of files> (Executable)

    a space separated list of files to pass to the application. This
    option is typically used to pass a list of files to be opened
    by an Eclipse application. This option requires SWT in order
    to fire the necessary SWT_OPENDOC event for the files that are
    specified. Relative paths will be resolved first against the current
    working directory, and second against the eclipse program directory.

Obviously, if a space is used as the list delimiter, there needs to be
a way to escape a space, or otherwise specify the list, when you don't
want it to be interpreted as a list delimiter.

Thanks,

Lewis
