myscript '$plusmore' 

should work. note the single quotes.

If you can't use single quotes, I don't know how to use it,, but there
is probably something more arcane that would work, were one a guru.

Have you read thru 'man bash', carefully, looking for informatiion on

there is also a document named Advanced Bash Scripting that gives lots
of gory details about doing odd things in Bash that might be helpful.
Google is your friend.
