Re: [PLUG] debugging an init script

Hi Carl,

You can probably do something like

/bin/bash -x /etc/init.d/servicescriptname {start|stop}

+1 for that, though all the ideas have been good.

You may also want to play with $PS4 which is the prompt for the -x debug output.

Possibly overkill example (and this looks like negative line numbers when not in a function):
	export PS4+xtrace $BASH_SOURCE::$FUNCNAME-$LINENO:= '

NOTE that the first character is duplicated to indicate nesting level, so make sure it's something that makes sense, like "+".

Lots more here:
