If it's in a file, it is a script.

Do note that commands in a file are not equivalent to commands typed into
an interactive shell.  If the commands set variables or change directory
or toggle shell options, those changes won't persist because you're running
a script, and they go away when the script terminates.  Maybe you want a
shell function instead.

When I've put the contents into a file?  Every. single. time.
