Maybe make it possible to add like

echo -a {
Line 1
Line 2
Line 3
}
but maybe add like 'echo -k' the 'k' will make it possible to use the brakets.
then you would make scripts smaller because you wouldnt need to use
echo <text>
echo <text>

this may be close to what your talking about, but not exactly, try checking the help file for $&. Not sure if thats what you mean, but it serves a similar purpose.

The $& identifier
This identifier allows you to break up a single line into multiple lines which are combined when the script is performed, so you can edit long commands more easily:

longline {
echo This is an example of a long $&
line that has been split into multiple lines $&
to make it easier to edit
}

That all echo's on the same line, he wants it too echo on multiple lines and I think it's a great idea.


You won't like it when I get angry.

you're a lazy bum. :P

echo does not take much to type.. But here's a script if you want to use it. It's not quite what you have there, but it's something similar..

Usage: //echo $echok(text,more text, etc, etc etc..).N

N = the number of the color or prefix for every line you want to use.. N is optional.
4 examples:
Code:
//echo $echok(text,more text, etc,  etc etc..)
//echo $echok(text,more text, etc,  etc etc..).12
//echo $echok(text,more text, etc,  etc etc..).12-
//echo $echok(text,more text, etc,  etc etc..).$rand(4,9)

The code (stick it in a remote file)
Code:
alias echok {  var %.i 1 | var %echok $ $+ %.i | while ( [ [ %echok ] ] != $null) { echo [ [ $prop ] ] [ [ %echok ] ]  | inc %.i | set %echok $ $+ %.i } }


Well, I hope this'll help you. smile
