echo -- Output one or more strings


echo (string arg1, string [argn]...)

Outputs all parameters.

Echo() is not actually a function (it is a language construct) so you are not required to use parantheses with it.

Example 1. Echo() example

echo "Hello World";

echo "This spans
multiple lines. The newlines will be 
output as well";

echo "This spans\nmultiple lines. The newlines will be\noutput as well.";

Note: In fact, if you want to pass more than one parameter to echo, you must not enclose the parameters within parentheses.
