I am writing a diagnostics script currently using echo commands like

echo -e "Hostname:\t\t"`hostname`

which prints out Hostname: {hostname}

Would I be better served accomplishing this task using printf instead of echo -e? If so what would a potential string look like? I want to make sure to keep all of the output from my various commands justified for a cleaner look. I am new to using printf so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Jason
