sorry but that’s perhaps not what R B needs.
set -v causes pre-shows any shell line regardless of being executed or not.
set -x display the real line AFTER having been processed, marked with
in heavy testing combine these command to see what lines are seen by shell
and what’s executed then; sometimes error messages appear in preparing the
command so errors seem to be result of the previous command. Don’t worry

I wanted to see what (if anything) is being executed in my sysinit file
it loads. I’m working on a new system layout to remove pieces that I
need, and I want to see what is being called as it boots. I remember
someone mentioning something to put in the sysinit or .boot file, but I
can’t remember what it was. boot -v only shows the contents of the boot
file as it loads, and I wanted to see the sysinit contents as they load.
Any ideas (besides echoing every line)?
