I'm trying to create a shell script that, among other things, starts up ssh-agent and adds a private key to the agent. Example:
#!/bin/bash # ... ssh-agent $SHELL ssh-add /path/to/key # ...
The problem with this is ssh-agent apparently kicks off another instance of $SHELL (in my case, bash) and from the script's perspective it's executed everything and ssh-add and anything below it is never run.
How can I run ssh-agent from my shell script and keep it moving on down the list of commands?
