The BashDB files page on SourceForge has a version of DDD on it for download that supports bashdb.

The file you want is ddd-3.3.12-test.tar.gz. You'll probably want to install in in /opt or /usr/local so it doesn't overwrite the regular copy of DDD you have. They you'll either have to make sure that the directory the ddd w/bashdb is in appears first in your PATH or you'll have to run it with the absolute path to the program.

I don't know how complicated your problem is but if you are in a BIG hurry, run your script like:

box:/$ sh -x my_bash_script

It gives a lot of output an with some clever thinking you can solve almost any problem. And sprinkle around some echo statements in your code.

Lightbulb late than never

I've come across this and other posts just like it. It makes me very angry when people make the suggestion to use echo statements and a "syntax checker" (sh -x does not really qualify, the man pages themselves tell you it just runs the script without executing any commands)

Now you tell me, how do you manage a large script with >2000 lines doing that? Argh... I hope your job doesn't involve giving suggestions to programmers or script writers, because if it is, we are in a world of hurt.

The answer to this question as far as I can see, was completely ignored and unanswered. People need to remember for the one person that asked the question, there are 10 million that are hoping they won't have to ask the same one. I wonder how many disappointed people come through here?

All I know is that 'ddd' is shaping up to be pretty bad when it comes to integrating with bash and bashdb, that's too bad. And the one time I *finally* got it to work, it CRASHED... (a nice little console message "Oops...blahblah "you found a bug!" more message text here"...

I cannot recommend it (ddd)
It would be nice if someone could actually throughly answer this question.

People trying to help you by suggesting alternative solutions makes you angry?

No one on this forum owes you anything. If someone makes a suggestion that does not fit your requirements there is no need to rant about it.

Yes sir, I'll get right on that...
