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
