Actually, its more complicated than I could get into the subjet line.
I have a Bourne shell script that is spawning a Sun command tool
running a program. The program has command-line arguments (this works
when the command-line arguments are removed). I want the command tool
to remain after the program stops running (so I can examine its
output). I would expect that I would have to use the '-I' option to
the command tool (but this doesn't work). The shell script looks
(abridged) like the following:
#! /bin/sh -f
# *** PROCESS COMMAND-LINE ARGUMENTS ***
# set 'debug' based on command-line arguments
# *** START THE SOFTWARE ***
invoke=" -I \"hmon -d $debug\""
echo COMMAND: $command
The 'echo' types 'COMMAND: cmdtool -I "hmon -d 50"', just like I'd expect
(and, when run on the command line of a Bourne shell, works perfectly).
But, the script causes a command tool to appear with the following
50": No such file or directory
How can I do what I'm trying to do?
