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 out‐
       put.  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 inte‐
	      ger.

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