Re: echo -n

HI All,

Thanks for your quick response.

I have tried using the printf instead of echo. But the issue with printf is , the behaviour is not consistent with what echo prints for all the inputs i.e.
In my script I am generically using echo for all the options. If I have to use printf instead of it should behave consistently .
if echo * is passed to bash shell, the o/p shows the \t seperated values whereas with printf '%s' *, it won't display space separated output. Again printf '%s ' # behaviour is different from what echo # shows

Thanks & Regards
--Jyoti

Not a bug, echo is not portable and posix recommends using printf e.g.

printf '%s\n' -n
