[snip]
I'm using the CLI version 4.3.4 on Windows XP Pro. The script I'm
writing has only a couple of functions, a couple of "if" conditionals
and a "while" loop. At the very top of the script I have an echo
statement with a message I want printed to the console window. The
problem is that it's not echoed until all of the functions and other
stuff is executed. Why is this the case? Anything I can do to get the
echo statement to run first thing?
[/snip]

Use output buffering and flush the echo statement ....
