Is there a simple way to cause a shell script to echo to the terminal 
similar to the old MS-DOS "echo on" command?

I've tried to read the fine man pages, and even tried looking at for 
instance the make scripts that seem to echo their commands to the 
terminal, but I couldn't even being to follow them.
