How to not diplay shell script lines running

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – So I created a small bash script to consolidate some files across a couple different unix machines, what they are is irrelevant. Script works fine. I have a batch file on a PC that remotely executes this script, again, no hiccups in the process. However in batch scripting, by running the script in null mode I can have the script only display specific lines of operation by ending that line of code with ">&2" Is there a way in bash scripting to do the same? The consolidation script, runs through the multiple machines getting files and bringing them to a single location... b (Hardware)
