The Batch Echo command is used to output smaller messages in batch files.
To hide a command output in batch files, you would use the at (@) sign.
Before you use echo, you may want to turn echo off, so that only the message it self is shown, without including the working path.
Batch Echo Example
The below is an example of a batch file showing the message "my first batch program", by the use of echo and pause.
echo off echo my first batch program pause
Notice that it will say "echo off" at the top of your program? To get rid of that, use the at sign in front of the command!
@echo off echo my first batch program echo. @pause
Use echo. to output an empty line.
