"The set command takes any arguments after the options (here
"--" signals the end of the options) and assigns them to the
positional parameters ($0..$n). The eval command executes its
arguments as a bash command.
"If you do this without the eval command you'll get the same
result as the first example. By passing the set command to eval
bash will honor the embedded quotes in the string rather than
assume they are part of the word."
