comment Is it common to split larger script into multiple scripts and source them in the main script?
especially given that even the older OSes like Solaris are shipping with perl, and python, etc, now. one reason older systems used shell scripts is that the shell was guaranteed to always be available, but bigger Unices, like HP-UX and Solaris, and AIX, couldn't be guaranteed to include other tools.

comment Setting file permissions in bash script
@JamesAndino the /o=rwx filter is a permissions filter that looks for r(read), w(write),x(execute) bits being set. The o means to compare the filter to the other field. You could also specify u for user, or g for group. or combinations, like -perm -u=rwx,o=rwx to match on both the user and group permissions.

comment Utility script framework
+1 for script templates. the real key is education of those writing scripts. define policies, eg: All scripts will send email on failure. All scripts will log output to /var/log/scriptname.log. All scripts will rotate X iterations of logfiles. etc.

comment How do I set an environment variable for sudo in MacOS?
i upvoted for the intent of the answer, and because I learned something new. note that OP is asking about JAVA_HOME, not PATH, though that's trivial and the answer would be the same.
