lessecho - expand metacharacters, such as * and ?, in filenames on Unix
lessecho [-ox] [-cx] [-pn] [-dn] [-a] file ...
This manual page documents briefly the lessecho command. This manual
page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the
original program does not have a manual page.
lessecho is a program that simply echos its filename arguments on standard
output. But any argument containing spaces is enclosed in quotes.
A summary of options are included below.
-ox Specifies "x" to be the open quote character.
-cx Specifies "x" to be the close quote character.
-pn Specifies "n" to be the open quote character, as an integer.
-dn Specifies "n" to be the close quote character, as an integer.
-a Specifies that all arguments are to be quoted. The default is
that only arguments containing spaces are quoted.

for the Debian GNU/Linux system (but may be used by others).
