I tried just adding quoted in the command line but when I tried going inside the directory and passing the realpath it removes the quotes which throws an error again. I couldn't find any information about this on the lectures so I was wondering if I could get some advice.
There is nothing wrong with having spaces in a file or directory name; it must be your code that is trying to find/break file or directory names into words or tokens. If you place double quotes around multiple words on the command-line: program "word1 word2 word3" then the shell removes the double quotes and passes it all as a single argument to the program.
