Does TCC improve CMD's implementation of ECHO?

An ECHO command immediately followed by a dot, is commonly used to output an empty line. I read on StackExchange that under CMD that triggers a search for a file? The advice given was to use (almost) any *but* the dot. Does TCC have the same issue? If so, what is the preferred method of typing an empty line?

Sure enough. How odd.

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.


C:\>copy con echo
        1 file(s) copied.

'echo.' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

C:\>del echo

ECHO in TCC does not trigger a search for a file. I'm not aware of it doing that under CMD either -- do you have a link to that thread on StackExchange?

That was

Some very creative code, must say,... if you're looking for test-cases to test TCC's compatibility with CMD.

So - just to be clear - there is no difference in performance then, triggered by the actual character following the ECHO command in TCC?
