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 stan‐
     dard 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 iden‐
     tical to this utility.  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”) compati‐
     ble.
