I want to run a command that sources a script to take on some env. variables before executing, without sourcing them in my current shell.
None of these commands echo the env. variable:
a) Shouldn't this work? Aren't I just executing these commands in a new shell and returning the output?
$ bash -c "source test.env && echo $test"
b) Here I execute test.env and try to run echo $test in the same process using exec.
$ bash -c "./test.env && exec echo $test"
c) Lastly I just tried this since it was a possible permutation. But it executes test.env and the echo command as separate processes.
$ bash -c "./test.env && echo $test"
And how can I get this to work where the env. variables are sourced before the 2nd command is executed?
