"echo on|off" - Control Echo Setting
How to change the default echo behavior with the "echo on|off" command?
By default, when a command is executed in a batch file, the command will be echoed on the screen before the execution.
But this behavior can be changed by running the "echo" command.
1. "echo on" - Change the setting to echo all commands.
2. "echo off" - Change the setting to stop echo all commands.
So if you want to stop echoing all commands in the batch file, you can start the batch file with "@echo off". The "@" modifier stops echoing the "echo" command itself.
If later in the batch, you want to resume echoing commands, just insert the "echo on" command.
Here is batch file called, Echo-Off-and-On.bat, which uses the "echo" command to control the echo behavior:
@echo off echo Running command privately for 10 seconds, don't move... ping -n 10 localhost > nul 2> nul echo Running the same command publicly now... echo on ping -n 10 localhost
if you run the above batch file, you get:
C:\fyicenter>Echo-Off-and-On.bat Running command privately for 1 minute, don't move... Running the same command publicly now... C:\fyicenter>ping -n 10 localhost Pinging localhost [::1] with 32 bytes of data Reply from ::1: time<1ms Reply from ::1: time<1ms Reply from ::1: time<1ms Reply from ::1: time<1ms Reply from ::1: time<1ms Reply from ::1: time<1ms Reply from ::1: time<1ms Reply from ::1: time<1ms Reply from ::1: time<1ms Reply from ::1: time<1ms Ping statistics for ::1: Packets: Sent = 10, Received = 10, Lost = 0 (0% loss), Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms
