On my FreeBSD box, I was trying do something in a Bourne script which at
first seemed fairly trivial - but has now clouded my mind thoroughly.
No problems so far. I get a new variable A_B that stores "something"
But if I spread the assignment over 2 lines as under :
The shell barks at me that it could find no command called 'thing'. Is
there some hack that I could use to get eval to 'understand' that the
assignment has an embedded newline ?
Thanks for any help.
