Hey, I'm trying to make the maximum heap size customisable by editing a "memory.txt" file which contains the following:
1  
Xmx128m

I don't want users having to go into my bat/sh scripts in order to change the maximum memory. I'm also using an auto update system, so they can't edit the scripts (they will get overwritten on the next update)

I execute the jar file using a bat or shell script as below.

My Windows bat file version works fine:
1  
2  
set /p HEAPSIZE=<memory.txt
java -%HEAPSIZE% -jar memorytest.jar


However my linux version fails (I run using sh)
1  
2  
HEAPSIZE= cat 'memory.txt'
java -$HEAPSIZE -jar memorytest.jar


This works though:  Huh
1  
2  
HEAPSIZE= "Xmx128m"
java -$HEAPSIZE -jar memorytest.jar


Can anyone help me get this working for linux/mac?
thanks Smiley
