Re: bash script + heredoc + tftp = bash ends unexpectedly

Note that the dot above does not mean the current directory. It is the same as

source foo

The following should have the same effect:

. /my/script/path/foo

I think the difference between the two cases is that ". foo" executes
the commands in foo in the current bash instance (as if you typed them
at the prompt) whereas the others all launch a separate bash process.

I tried to reproduce your experiment but it always just ended
normally, perhaps because I don't have tftp installed.

Are you sure you don't have "exit" in your script somewhere?
