How to keep quotes in Bash arguments

0 votes

I have a Bash script where I want to keep quotes in the arguments passed.

Example:

./test.sh this is "some test"

then I want to use those arguments, and re-use them, including quotes and quotes around the whole argument list.

I tried using \"$@\", but that removes the quotes inside the list.

How do I accomplish this?

utilizing "$@" will substitute the contentions as a rundown, without re-dividing them on whitespace (they were parted once when the shell script was conjured), which is by and large precisely exact thing you need on the off chance that you simply need to re-pass the contentions to another program.

Note that this is an exceptional structure and is possibly perceived thusly in the event that it shows up precisely along these lines. In the event that you add anything more in the statements the outcome will get consolidated into a solitary contention.

What are you attempting to do and how is it not functioning?
