…with an open minded approach

debugging bash scripts

There is a very handy bash option, that will “run the entire script in debug mode. Traces of each command plus its arguments are printed to standard output after the commands have been expanded but before they are executed” (see [1])

This seems most usefull for inhouse-scripts, to show progress of the script
