I have a pretty simple script that is something like the following:
#!/bin/bash VAR1="$1" MOREF='sudo run command against $VAR1 | grep name | cut -c7-' echo $MOREF
When I run this script from the command line and pass it the arguments, I am not getting any output. However, when I run the commands contained within the
$MOREF variable, I am able to get output.
How can one take the results of a command that needs to be run within a script, save it to a variable, and then output that variable on the screen?
