comment PATH problem: bash: /usr/local/bin/adb: No such file or directory

@steeldriver No, set PATH rather than using absolute paths to commands.

comment Run a shell script as another user that has no password

comment How to automatically execute a command every time a certain command terminates?
"$@" expands all arguments as separate arguments. "$*" expands all arguments as a single argument (using the first character of IFS as separator). Using either unquoted is always wrong, since that will cause the shell to do word-splitting and pathname expansion on the result of the expansion.
