NAME
       lessecho - expand metacharacters

SYNOPSIS
       lessecho [-ox] [-cx] [-pn] [-dn] [-mx] [-nn] [-ex] [-a] file ...

DESCRIPTION
       lessecho  is  a	program  that  simply  echos  its  arguments on standard output.  But any
       metacharacter in the output is preceded by an "escape" character, which by  default  is	a
       backslash.

OPTIONS
       A summary of options is included below.

       -ex    Specifies "x", rather than backslash, to be the escape char for metachars.  If x is
	      "-", no escape char is used and arguments containing metachars  are  surrounded  by
	      quotes instead.

       -ox    Specifies  "x",  rather than double-quote, to be the open quote character, which is
	      used if the -e- option is specified.

       -cx    Specifies "x" to be the close quote character.

       -pn    Specifies "n" to be the open quote character, as an integer.

       -dn    Specifies "n" to be the close quote character, as an integer.

       -mx    Specifies "x"  to  be  a	metachar.   By	default,  no  characters  are  considered
	      metachars.

       -nn    Specifies "n" to be a metachar, as an integer.

       -fn    Specifies "n" to be the escape char for metachars, as an integer.

       -a     Specifies  that all arguments are to be quoted.  The default is that only arguments
	      containing metacharacters are quoted
