The following example shows a batch program that includes a three-line message preceded and followed by a blank line:

echo off
echo This batch program
echo formats and checks
echo new disks

If you want to turn echo off and you do not want to echo the echo command itself, include an at sign (@) before the command, as follows:

@echo off

You can use the if and echo commands on the same command line, as follows:

if exist *.rpt echo The report has arrived.
