+Every command line argument gets printed on a separate line by default e.g.:
+$ herbe "First line" "Second line" "Third line" ...
+You can also use `\n` e.g. in `bash`:
+$ herbe $'First line\nSecond line\nThird line'
+But by default `herbe` prints `\n` literally:

+Output of other programs will get printed correctly, just make to escape it (so you don't end up with every word on a separate line):
