Print a string to the STDOUT and set it's data-type


Write parameters to STDOUT without a trailing new line character. Cast the output's data-type to the value of the first parameter.


tout data-type "string to write" -> <stdout>


» tout json { "Code": 404, "Message": "Page not found" } -> pretty
    "Code": 404,
    "Message": "Page not found"


tout supports ANSI constants.

Unlike out, tout does not append a carriage return / line feed.
