in thread OT: unable to use the options of echo in my shell terminal bash ofcourse

x\ty works as expected in zsh 4.3.10; does not in /bin/sh (FreeBSD ash) & bash 4.3.42 as shown above.

Then again I much prefer to use the command (/usr/bin/)printf, NOT the shell built-in, unless just writing one-off script on the command line.
