in reply to keeping something in memory after the end of script

If the "Next run" is started from the same shell, or a child of that shell, you could use "export"ed environment variables to persist data, as suggested here.

        This is not an optical illusion, it just looks like one.

    Not really (at least, not without some sort of nutso magic trick). The shell would be the parent process of your script; you can't mess with your parent's environment.

      Point taken (++), but the magic is not too achene:
      ~$ chksum=$(perl -e'print qq|Set by perl|'); echo BASH says chksum is +$chksum BASH says chksum is Set by perl

              This is not an optical illusion, it just looks like one.
