I have written the following script to set some environment variables when needed:
#!/bin/sh export BASE=/home/develop/trees echo $BASE export PATH=$PATH:$BASE echo $PATH
Below the command and the results I can see on my terminal: the script runs, but the variables are not set at the end.
~$: ./script.sh /home/develop/trees /bin:......:/home/develop/trees ~$: echo $BASE ~$:
What is wrong?
