Shalom,

Shell scripting is so wide open, I know of no tools that will check a shell script other than the shell itself. The sell has diagnostics, set -x and such to let you check a script as it runs.

Hi,

Thinking more broadly, and not just suggesting an HP supplied tool:

I just noticed the open source shcov is availble on freshmeat. It portends to demonstrate coverage, or portions of the shell script code which is executed with a given set of input aruments. Homepage:
http://shcov.googlecode.com

Build security in, then use tools to check how this is going.

Or write them in perl and see if perl has such a tool.
