NAME

lessecho - expand metacharacters  

SYNOPSIS

lessecho [-ox] [-cx] [-pn] [-dn] [-mx] [-nn] [-ex] [-a] file ...  

DESCRIPTION

lessecho is a program that simply echos its arguments on standard output. But any metacharacter in the output is preceded by an "escape" character, which by default is a backslash.  

OPTIONS

A summary of options is included below.
-ex
Specifies "x", rather than backslash, to be the escape char for metachars. If x is "-", no escape char is used and arguments containing metachars are surrounded by quotes instead.
-ox
Specifies "x", rather than double-quote, to be the open quote character, which is used if the -e- option is specified.
-cx
Specifies "x" to be the close quote character.
-pn
Specifies "n" to be the open quote character, as an integer.
-dn
Specifies "n" to be the close quote character, as an integer.
-mx
Specifies "x" to be a metachar. By default, no characters are considered metachars.
-nn
Specifies "n" to be a metachar, as an integer.
-fn
Specifies "n" to be the escape char for metachars, as an integer.
-a
Specifies that all arguments are to be quoted. The default is that only arguments containing metacharacters are quoted
