I didn't know that one was using $KDEDIRS. Thanks.
Of course, if you're using it to SET $KDEDIRS (as one might be doing,
given its purpose). Of course, it's probably more likely that one's
setting $KDEHOME there, given it's a user var, and using a system global
script to set the $KDEDIRS var, perhaps as part of the initscripts, given
its system nature.

The old shebang trick should work.
# or whatever, as first-line.
FWIW, that's what I use in any case, since the editor I use (mcedit,
FWIW) uses it to detect the appropriate context coloring. (Of course it
generally uses extension too, but identifying scripts and executables by
extension is so MS, something I left behind over a decade ago, tho I do
commonly still use extensions for data-files.)
