The echo command prints the specified text as prompt.


echo text
  1. text is the specific text to be output.


The echo command allows you to generate exactly the output that you want.

Special characters can be included in text using C escape sequences, such as '\n' to print a newline. No newline is printed unless you specify one. In addition to the standard C escape sequences, a backslash followed by a space stands for a space. A backslash at the end of text can be used to continue the command onto subsequent lines.
