I'm not totally sure how it happens or what the conditions for re-reading the script are, but it is known[1].

PS (to Chet, et al): is this documented in detail somewhere? This seems like one of the few things that I've not been able to find functional documentation on, whether in the bash manuals, or elsewhere.

It seems that a bash script is not first load into memory completely
and then get run. Is it the case? I think that this is true because
modifying a running bash script sometimes causes the existing run of
the script fail.

If so, is there a way to let bash read a script completely before
running it so that editing the script will not cause the run fail?
