       echo - display a line of text


       echo [SHORT-OPTION]... [STRING]...
       echo LONG-OPTION


       Echo the STRING(s) to standard output.

       -n     do not output the trailing newline

       -e     enable interpretation of backslash escapes

       -E     disable interpretation of backslash escapes (default)

       --help display this help and exit

              output version information and exit

       If -e is in effect, the following sequences are recognized:

       \\     backslash

       \a     alert (BEL)

       \b     backspace

       \c     produce no further output

       \e     escape

       \f     form feed

       \n     new line

       \r     carriage return

       \t     horizontal tab

       \v     vertical tab

       \0NNN  byte with octal value NNN (1 to 3 digits)

       \xHH   byte with hexadecimal value HH (1 to 2 digits)

       NOTE:  your  shell  may  have  its  own  version of echo, which usually
       supersedes the version described here.  Please refer  to  your  shell's
       documentation for details about the options it supports.
