What other options of set are typically used in bash scripts?
Usually I see set -o errexit, set -o nounset, and set -o pipefail as safety catches. Ben is right on about set -x. That’s a great one for debugging. Googling or running ‘man set’ will give you a bunch more info :)
-x prints out every command as it's run, which can be fun (if verbose) for debugging.
