To aid in debugging the script I'm writing, I place "echo" commands
throughout so I can kind of have a trace of the logic as different
conditions are processed. Normally I just delete these "echo" commands
after I get the script working.
But this time I want to try something different. I want to
enable/disable the echo commands in mass. So in the beginning of the
script I added these 2 lints.
#trace="" # use to enable trace echo
trace="#" # use to disable trace echo
In front of each of the echo commands I added this,
$trace echo "what ever."
When I exec the script I get error message #: not found
What is happing here? Is the substitution to late?
Is there a way to fix this?
Thanks for your help
