To display "Some Text", use the command:
echo Some Text
This will output the string
Some Text followed by a new line.
To display the strings
Off (case insensitive) or the empty string, use a
( instead of white-space:
echo(ON echo( echo(off
This will output:
It is also common to use
echo. to output a blank line, but please see the remarks for why this is not the best idea.
To display text without including a CR/LF, use the following command:
<nul set/p=Some Text
This command will attempt to set the variable called the empty string to the user input following a prompt. The
nul file is redirected to the command with
<nul, so the command will give up as soon as it tries to read from it and only the prompt string will be left. Because the user never typed a new line, there is no linefeed.
