This program simply echoes whatever is given to it on the command line.
Usage: djecho [-n] [-o file] [-s] [-a] args...
Do not emit the trailing newline after printing the text.
Send output to a file.
Separate args with a newline, instead of the default blank. This is useful for writing several lines of output in a single invocation (which is faster than several separate commands).
Append the output to the file instead of overwriting it. Useful with the `-o' option.
The purpose of this program is to be able to interact directly with
make's ability to pass long command lines to programs. If you
use redirection, you aren't always able to handle long command lines
(especially since echo is normally in `command.com'). With
djecho, you can, and you can use the `-o' option to redirect
output to a file (and use the file later as a response file) without
using DOS's redirection.
Latest versions of ported
make do not invoke `command.com'
for redirection and
echo commands, but
djecho is still
useful for related tasks, e.g. for writing several lines to a file in a
single invocation. Since
djecho is part of the basic DJGPP
development environment, it is easy to rely on it being present when a
package is built.
