LFS201 LAB 37.3

Can someone tell me what the "set -x" syntax at the beginning of the script on item 6 in this lab means?

#!/bin/bash
set -x

rsync --progress -zvrxH -e "ssh -c blowfish" --delete $*

I looked under the set man page, which explains that it identifies a key sequence that executes a shell command. I'm not really sure what this means or how it is used here.
