I know this must be in the FAQ but still not able to find it , pls
excuse me

How to accept space in command line args

I have a simple script like this
for i in $*;do
    echo "ARG = $i"
exit 0

So  if i run
export IFS=`echo -e "\n"`
./ "hello ram"

I would expect
ARG = hello ram

BUT I get
ARG = hello
ARG = ram

BTW If I put export IFS line in the script it does work
I dont understand why
