I wrote a bash script that uses "sudo -i [command]". This script works
fine with sudo version 1.7.4p6. However, it fails when using sudo version
I found that for version 1.7.2p1 the [command] has to be enclosed in
With version 1.7.4p6, [command] must not be enclosed in quotes.
Do you have any recommendations on how to write a portable script that will
handle both syntax?
I made it work by trying both syntax and checking which one returns
error-free. Just wondering if there is a more elegant way.
