Use Bash's "shift" built-in as a synonym for "set".

comment How to combine Bash's read with HERE-document when shopt -os errexit is in place?
An external command such as cat is always an alternative but I prefer to use Bash built-in's wherever possible. Also inserting \n at the end of each line is not an option for me since my actual text is around 50 lines long.

comment How to combine Bash's process substitution with HERE-document?
I tried your "workaround" and it would work for me. Thanks. But still I want to grasp why my combination of a HERE-document nested inside a process substitution does not work. Have you got an answer?

I must admit it is a contrived example. My actual needs are more complex than that.
