in bash echo -n , echo -e , echo -E has a special meaning. But we do not 
have a way in bash shell if we want to print 
-n , -e and -E using echo command. Other shells supports printing of 
-n/-e/-E options using echo command. 

For example 

with ksh 
# echo -n

with bash
# echo -n


Please let us know if this a bug or do we have any other option to print 
-n ?

Here is the environment details.

version: bash 4.3
Hardware and Operating System P7 AIX
Compiled with AIX xlc
