Adventurers' Help: echo


Command: set echo - sets the "echo" of your commands

Description:
	By setting/changing your environment variable 'echo' you manipulate
	the "echo" you get for various commands like 'say', 'tell', 'shout',
	'get', 'put', etc.

	The arguments' meanings are:
	on:	commands produce verbose information (default).
	off:	commands do not produce any output when successful.
	ok:	commands return a simple 'Ok.' if successful.
	<text>:	commands return a prompt saying <text>.

Syntax:
	set echo
	set echo on
	set echo off
	set echo ok
	set echo <text>

Examples:
	set echo				shows the status of 'echo':
	Variable echo is currently set to: on

	say testing - echo on			'say' results in "You say: .."
	You say: testing - echo on

	set echo off				changes 'echo' to 'off':
	Variable echo set to: off
	say testing again - echo off		'say' results in no "echo".

	set echo ok				changes 'echo' to 'ok':
	Variable echo set to: ok
	say testing again - echo ok		'say' results in "Ok."
	Ok.

	set echo Yes, Sir!			changes 'echo' to 'Yes, Sir':
	Variable echo set to: Yes, Sir!
	say testing - with echo my text		'say' results to:
	Yes, Sir!

	set echo on				changes 'echo' to 'on' again:
	Variable echo set to: on

Note:
	This setting is permanent - see 'help set'.
