ECHO(1)                     General Commands Manual                    ECHO(1)



NAME
       echo - echo arguments

SYNOPSIS
       echo [ -n ] [ arg ] ...

DESCRIPTION
       Echo  writes its arguments separated by blanks and terminated by a new-
       line on the standard output.  If the flag -n is  used,  no  newline  is
       added to the output.

       Echo  is  useful  for  producing  diagnostics in shell programs and for
       writing constant data on pipes.  To send diagnostics  to  the  standard
       error file, do `echo ... 1>&2'.
