FYI the "echo" command is basically made out of footguns and should never be used in a shell script - use printf(1) instead.
@sir Also printf is portable opposed to echo, iirc.
@sir why was echo included in coreutils in the first place when printf already does whatever echo does?
@yerinalexey @sir i was just looking here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_GNU_Core_Utilities_commands and it has echo listed
@sir Backward compatibility?
@sir Thanks for the head's up.
