However, the below script still results in an error message: RUN bash -c "$(/bin/echo -e "cat <<EOF | tee -a /tmp/test.txt \ \n<test> \ \n something here \ \n</test> \ EOF \ ")" bash: line 13: warning: here-document at line 0 delimited by end-of-file (wanted `EOF') It looks like I need to make some additional changes when it is used in a docker script?
