Well you have written an awesome Bash script. It works perfectly and perhaps there is no need to add new functionality. Well, maybe not for now, at least! At this stage you are happy with the script. However, after few months you reopen your bash script again to add new feature and you get a headache to figure out on how the script actually works. Hence, you need to spend additional energy and time before you can actually start editing the script in order to add new feature.
Well, at this point you regret that you did not put some comments ( notes ) into the script to remind you of how the bash script is structured. Not only that Bash comments serve as excellent notes for you or anybody else who might work with your script they may be to some extend also used as a basic bash script debugging tool.

- How to comment on bash command line
