|Re: [PLUG] Odd script problem|
|I would discourage sourcing anything in ~ for scripts that are intended to be deterministic. Months from now you may make a change to your environment which will break your script. It’s also a security risk as you’re allowing an attacker access to a script that might be running as root by editing a presumably less privileged user’s environment.|
I would suggest you define the environment for the script deterministically whether it be in the script it self or in a profile that is not tied to an interactive user.
