Command: eecho

EECHO displays messages. EECHO is a CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS command.


EECHO [message] with ANSI Escape Sequence


message The message you want to be displayed to the user.


EECHO allows for echo-ing ANSI Escape Sequences (redefines keyboard input for example). Use a dollar sign ($) to represent the ANSI Escape character. Note: requires an ANSI driver like NANSI loaded prior to use. EECHO is a command internal to kernel.sys and needs no other file in order to work.


IN CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS: EECHO feeling $[33;44;1m blue :-)
