Answered How would i make a for loop generate text side by side instead of in newlines?


Legendary Coder
For example, normally for loops do text like this:

for num in 1 2 3 4 5; do
echo "$num"


But what would you need to generate this outcome:
1 2 3 4 5
Of course. I really don't know why you suggested that ! As I wrote, you need to add the -n flag:

for num in 1 2 3 4 5; do
echo -n "$num"
I don't know, I was posting through my phone like I am now, I tend to find thinking out loud to be good for creativity even if it's highly erroneous...I realized before I tested it that it's probably just going to put the space in front of it, you could have warned me silly :p
