[Techtalk] How do I Tarball with spaces in filenames and dirs?

I need to tarball a directory that has subdirs and filenames that also
contain spaces ('\ ') in them and I need it done recursively. I tried
everything I could think of and can't seem to get it to work. Why would
I want to use spaces? My PSP 8 project uses dirs with spaces in them to
find certain files, unfortunately.

Any idea how to do this?
