echo


hi guys

I'm writing a shell script and I wanted to include some ASCII art I've created, but when using the echo command to display it, it seems to cut out multiple spaces which kinda screws up the picture I did read somewhere that if you place " around the line it stops it removing them, but it just dosnt seem to work , heres the code, thanks in advance !

Code:
LOGO="+==============================================================+\n
|                                           ____               |\n
|                                           |__|               |\n
|     __________ ____      ______             ___      ___     |\n
|    /   _   \ | |   \    /      \---\   /--| |  \    /  /     |\n
|    |  |_|  | |_|   |------\ ___|    \  |  |---  \  /  /      |\n
|    |       |       |   _  | |__      \ |  |  |\  \/  /       |\n
|    |    ___/       |  |_| |  __|  |\  \|  |  | \    /        |\n
|    |   | |   |-|   |      | |__   | \     |  | /    \        |\n
|    |   | |   | |   |------/    |__|  \____|  |/  /\  \       |\n
|    |   | \---- ----/    \______/         |___|  /  \  \      |\n
|    \___/                                    /  /    \__\     |\n
|                                            /__/              |\n
|                                                              |\n

If you use the <tab> key when making these ascii images it can screw it up sometimes. I ran into this myself once. Are you using the <tab> key while creating this?

hi, thx for replying, no I didnt use the tab key once when creating it, I thought that might be what it was so I purposly didnt use tabs, only spaces, heres what I get on my sceen when running the script ...

Code:
+==============================================================+
 | ____ |
 | |__| |
 | __________ ____ ______ ___ ___ |
 | / _ \ | | \ / \---\ /--| | \ / / |
 | | |_| | |_| |------\ ___| \ | |--- \ / / |
 | | | | _ | |__ \ | | |\ \/ / |
 | | ___/ | |_| | __| |\ \| | | \ / |
 | | | | |-| | | |__ | \ | | / \ |
 | | | | | | |------/ |__| \____| |/ /\ \ |
 | | | \---- ----/ \______/ |___| / \ \ |
 | \___/ / / \__\ |
 | /__/ |
 | |
 +==============================================================+
as you can see, its removed all multiple spaces and replaced them with single ones
