Bash debugger

This is for all of you hardcore bash scripters that sometimes want better debugging than placing "echo" statements in your scripts.

A co-worker sent this out to our internal sysadmin mail alias today.


It references the bashdb project (bash debugger). I didn't know one existed.

wow, I don't know how I'd feel about writing bash scripts in a sane manner. Part of the appeal is the write-only aspect. ;-)

Seriously though, that is neat. I'm going to have to check it out. If it's easy to implement, I'll definitely start using it. Thanks for the heads up

Don't forget about "set -x" !
