I use the command:
cm1 cm2 arg1 arg2 'argument 3'
It first goes to
cm1, which will then redirect
arg1 arg2 'argument 3' to another file.
#! /bin/bash # some script here shift cm2 $@
echo $# # This returns 4 in lieu of 3 because the white space in 'argument 3' causes the argument to be split into two arguments.
So, how can I pass arguments from one script to another and make sure white space won't be read as an argument separator?
