NAME
       lessecho - expand metacharacters, such as * and ?, in filenames on Unix systems.

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

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents briefly the lessecho command.  This manual page was written for
       the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program  does  not  have	a  manual
       page.

       lessecho is a program that simply echos its filename arguments on standard output. But any
       argument containing spaces is enclosed in quotes.

OPTIONS
       A summary of options are included below.

       -ox    Specifies "x" to be the open quote character.

       -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.

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