Hello Gabriel,

I've noticed that trailing spaces are not ignored when a filename is input.

I think this is the (correct) behaviour of all editors and commands in general. I have tried moe, joe and nano, and none of them ignore trailing, leading or embedded spaces in filenames. Not even when the name is specified in the command line:

$ touch a.txt
$ ed "a.txt "
a.txt : No such file or directory
$ rm "a.txt "
rm: cannot remove `a.txt ': No such file or directory
$ rm a.txt

This has become an annoyance because I'm often wrapping ed in rlfe, which
appends a space to the filename upon tab completion.

Then I guess the bug is in rlfe (whatever it is).

Best regards,
