I want to store an array of some quotes (so basically real-world strings with new lines) in a file. How can I achieve it? I thought of setting the IFS to something like “xxxxxxxxx74765xxx” (which will never occur in my strings), but of course, IFS only works for single chars.
I can think of some ugly hacks to do it (e.g., store that nonsense string as a line between elements, read the file line by line and check each line against it, and rebuild the array thus.), but I will appreciate some more experienced opinions.
