10.5: Fix the echo -n problem in 10.5
Authored by: hypert on Nov 26, '07 09:28:05AM
Note the other item mentioned on that page too:
New applications are encouraged to use printf instead of echo.
I had read something like that years ago and switched to printf (and sometimes just plain "print" for most of my shell scripts (usu. /bin/sh in Solaris 2.8)).
