Capturing exit values and using a parameters file
Currently the script looks something like:
#!/bin/bsh rsync -rvvv location_1::temp /tmp/loc_1/ rsync -rvvv location_2::temp /tmp/loc_2/ rsync -rvvv location_3::temp /tmp/loc_3/ ...
...what I really want to do is have this script loop through the locations (reading them from a file) and then have the script use the exit values from rsync to identify when a particular location fails. If a location fails, it would place the location into a error file that could be used to retry the locations automatically. I'm still learning shell scripting so any help would be appreciatted.

for foo in "$bar" do baz $foo done
To capture error codes, you can check the variable $? after each command.

#! /bin/bash for link in `cat links.txt` do echo -n "testing $link..." if rsync -rvvv $link then echo "good" else echo "bad" fi done
