Hi Experts,

I see in perl logs, it will tell what functions its calling using caller function and also we can see the trace of the code.

In same way is it possible in shell script we can trace the code in logs  ?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Thanks

If it is a bash script..You can enable debug mode by adding set -x below shebang or run the script with bash -x <script>

you can put

#!/bin/bash -x

at the beginning of your script and this will display commands on screen while running script. If you want this to be sent to logs file then you can redirect the script like:

/path/to/script >> /path/to/logs 2>&1
