RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for echo (redhat section 1)

ECHO(1) 				       FSF					  ECHO(1)

NAME
       echo - display a line of text

SYNOPSIS
       echo [OPTION]... [STRING]...

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

       Echo the STRING(s) to standard output.

       -n     do not output the trailing newline

       -e     enable interpretation of the backslash-escaped characters listed below

       -E     disable interpretation of those sequences in STRINGs

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
	      output version information and exit

       Without -E, the following sequences are recognized and interpolated:

       \NNN   the character whose ASCII code is NNN (octal)

       \\     backslash

       \a     alert (BEL)

       \b     backspace

       \c     suppress trailing newline

       \f     form feed

       \n     new line

       \r     carriage return

       \t     horizontal tab

       \v     vertical tab
