echo [2006/08/01 03:13] (current)
Line 1: Line 1:
 +======Synopsis:​======
 +__echo__ [<​anything>​]
 +
 +======Description:​======
 +This command prints its arguments back to the screen. ​ That's it.  It
 +is useful for printing status messages from inside scripts, or inside
 +hooks for redefining server messages.
 +
 +The [[ECHO]] command is also the only command (one of two, actually; see
 +[[XECHO]]) that can write to the screen when [[set DISPLAY]] is off. [[ECHO]]
 +now has no length limitation, it can display any string within the confines of
 +memory.
 +
 +======Other Notes:​======
 +[[ECHO]] will not normally expand variables unless it is used inside an alias.
 +To force expansion, use [[EVAL]] or set [[set INPUT_ALIASES|INPUT_ALIASES]] on.
 +This is not a bug, it is an intentional feature common to all commands.
