I'm trying to learn about here-docs and here-strings. I'd like to understand why the output of
echo <<< more than one word omits the first word. E.g.
> echo <<< more than one word than one word > echo <<< a b c b c >echo <<< "more than one word" -- <blank line> --
The same behavior is not true of
>cat <<< "more than one word" more than one word
What I have researched:
The Wikipedia Here document article. Frankly I tend to find many Wikipedia articles abstruse, including the noted; plus their examples did not address this specific issue.

I also could not find an existing question on Super User on this specific topic.
