NAME
       print  -  shell built-in function to output characters to the screen or
       window

SYNOPSIS
   ksh
       print [ -Rnprsu [n]] [arg...]

DESCRIPTION
   ksh
       The shell output mechanism. With no flags or with  flag  -  or  -,  the
       arguments are printed on standard output as described by echo(1).

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -n              suppresses new-line from being added to the output.



       -R


       -r              (raw  mode)  ignore the escape conventions of echo. The
                       -R option  will  print  all  subsequent  arguments  and
                       options other than -n.



       -p              causes the arguments to be written onto the pipe of the
                       process spawned with |&& instead of standard output.



       -s              causes the arguments to be  written  onto  the  history
                       file instead of standard output.



       -u [ n ]        flag can be used to specify a one digit file descriptor
                       unit number n on which the output will be  placed.  The
                       default is 1.



EXIT STATUS
       The following exit values are returned:

       0        Successful operation.



       >>0       Output file is not open for writing.
