LXer: quote-count: A debugging tool for shell scripts

Published at LXer:

I've been doing a lot of shell scripting lately with Dash and Bash. Complicated scripts with lots of text handling make debugging difficult, especially when they are being used in sub-shells which obfuscate line numbers in error messages. One of my more common mistakes is an unmatched quote. These can be rather difficult to find so I wrote quote-count, a simple analysis tool that counts quotes in lines.
