Can bash show a function s definition

0 votes

Is there a way to view a bash function's definition in bash?

For example, say I defined the function foobar

function foobar {
    echo "I'm foobar"
}

Is there any way to later get the code that foobar runs?

$ # non-working pseudocode
$ echo $foobar
echo "I'm foobar
