Note that you should be very careful about running scripts inside
eshell. While eshell is a great interactive shell, it is not a fully
compliant shell. For example, it does not handle IO redirection. Many
scripts use such techniques and will not run correctly. To make it
worse, it will fail silently. Either use M-x
shell, M-x term or run outside of emacs.
