OpenDarwin 7.2.1 - man page for echo (opendarwin section 1)

ECHO(1) 			   BSD General Commands Manual				  ECHO(1)

NAME
     echo -- write arguments to the standard output

SYNOPSIS
     echo [-n] [string ...]

DESCRIPTION
     The echo utility writes any specified operands, separated by single blank (' ') characters
     and followed by a newline ('\n') character, to the standard output.

     The following option is available:

     -n    Do not print the trailing newline character.  This may also be achieved by appending
	   '\c' to the end of the string, as is done by iBCS2 compatible systems.

     Some shells may provide a builtin echo command which is similar or identical to this util-
     ity.  Consult the builtin(1) manual page.

DIAGNOSTICS
     The echo utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

SEE ALSO
     builtin(1), csh(1), printf(1), sh(1)

STANDARDS
     The echo utility is expected to be IEEE Std 1003.2 (``POSIX.2'') compatible.
