I'm facing some strange behabiour in my bash script.
I have a simple script
parser.sh, wich is really simple:
#!/bin/bash for arg in "$@" do echo ARGUMENT: "$arg" done
This script is called from another script in the same directory, lets call this one
#!/bin/bash `pwd`/parser.sh "ARG1=FIRST" "ARG2=TESTING SPACES"
The script shown above really works, and outputs the arguments as expected:
ARGUMENT: ARG1=FIRST ARGUMENT: ARG2=TESTING SPACES
However, if I change the
test.sh as follows:
#!/bin/bash ARGS="\"ARG1=FIRST\" \"ARG2=TESTING SPACES\"" `pwd`/parser.sh $ARGS
This simple modification, makes the code to fails when iterating over arguments:
ARGUMENT: "ARG1=FIRST" ARGUMENT: "ARG2=TESTING ARGUMENT: SPACES"
Why is that happening? What am I missing?
Thanks in advance
