I have a complex command that I’d like to make a shell/bash script of. I can write it in terms of
foo $1 args -o $1.ext
I want to be able to pass multiple input names to the script. What’s the right way to do it?
And, of course, I want to handle filenames with spaces in them.
"[email protected]" to represent all the arguments:
for var in "[email protected]" do echo "$var" done
This will iterate over each argument and print it out on a separate line. [email protected] behaves like $* except that when quoted the arguments are broken up properly if there are spaces in them:
sh test.sh 1 2 '3 4' 1 2 3 4
