Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting Pass C shell array to another C shell script(csh) and shell(sh) Post 302980188 by bakunin on Thursday 25th of August 2016 04:10:38 AM

First off, the standard warning about C-shell scripts applies. Avoid using this buggy shell if you can and use (most preferably) Korn Shell or bash or (second-best alternatives) tcsh, zsh, or any other shell.

The keyword for this is source. When you use it and give it a file as parameter like:

Code:
source /path/to/file

the file with the specified name is executed in the same environment your calling script runs in. This way, if you set some variable inside "/path/to/file", it will be set in your calling script.

I hope this helps.

NAME
rbash - restricted bash, see bash(1) RESTRICTED SHELL
If bash is started with the name rbash, or the -r option is supplied at invocation, the shell becomes restricted. A restricted shell is used to set up an environment more controlled than the standard shell. It behaves identically to bash with the exception that the follow- ing are disallowed or not performed: o changing directories with cd o setting or unsetting the values of SHELL, PATH, ENV, or BASH_ENV o specifying command names containing / o specifying a file name containing a / as an argument to the . builtin command o specifying a filename containing a slash as an argument to the -p option to the hash builtin command o importing function definitions from the shell environment at startup o parsing the value of SHELLOPTS from the shell environment at startup o redirecting output using the >, >|, <>, >&, &>, and >> redirection operators o using the exec builtin command to replace the shell with another command o adding or deleting builtin commands with the -f and -d options to the enable builtin command o using the enable builtin command to enable disabled shell builtins o specifying the -p option to the command builtin command o turning off restricted mode with set +r or set +o restricted. These restrictions are enforced after any startup files are read. When a command that is found to be a shell script is executed, rbash turns off any restrictions in the shell spawned to execute the script. SEE ALSO
