If you can, it is better to restructure what you want to do by passing the
arguments to the target command on stdin, rather than on the command line. I
realise that this may not be possible in all cases, but it is generally the
preferred approach if you can achieve it.

The advantage is that your resulting script will work with all bash
instances irrespective of what the argument limit on the particular bash
instance you are presented with is.
