Subject: RFP: jecho -- Java version of echo
Date: Fri, 1 Apr 2011 11:56:52 +0200
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : jecho
  Version         : 1.00
  Upstream Author : Brendan Gregg
* URL             : http://www.brendangregg.com/specials.html#jecho
* License         : GPLv2+
  Programming Lang: Java
  Description     : Java version of echo

This version of echo obeys the POSIX 1003.1, 2004 standard, which 
specifies that echo shall not support any options, and need not support 
any escape characters (and this doesn't). This way sites can use the 
same standard version of echo on all their systems, and not be at the 
mercy of quirky shell builtins.
