program echo-line command


program echo-line s

Specify output to echo to the console.


As with all program commands, use of the command word program is optional; program echo-line and echo-line are both valid.

Even if the global echo state has been set to off (via program echo) or the suppress keyword has been given with the program call command, the string s is output to the console when this command is used. This is useful for posting status information while processing long data files.
