script to replace spaces in file names with dash or underscore.

I'm using HP-UX. I have a whole directory of several files imported from NT with spaces in the file names.
I need a script to change the all the spaces in the file names to underscore.

example:

fig 3-23 11 of 14.tif  to  fig_3-23_11_of_14.tif

Create a little shell script in the directory, e.g. "rs.sh", like so:

mv "$1" `echo $1 | tr " " "_"`

Execute this in the directory with:
find . -name "*.tif" -exec ./rs.sh {} \;
