echo won't turn off

I am running a .m script that calls a function saved as a separate .m file. When I was debugging the script I tried many times to turn "echo" on. I tried
echo on
echo on all
echo myfunction on
echo myfunction.m on
echo myscript.m on
echo myscript on
It seemed that none of these definitively worked the first time I tried it, but eventually echo started working. I'm not sure which of those commands made echo come on, but it is definitely on now, and I can't turn it off! I have tried
echo off
echo off all
echo myfunction off
echo myfunction.m off
echo myscript.m off
echo myscript off
I have run these commands multiple times, but it is still echoing the commands in my script.
Has anybody experienced trouble turning echo on and off? I also tried restarting matlab, but it is still echoing. I looked in startup.m in my home directory, and did not see anything about echo in it.
Thanks for any help people can offer.

Oh, my bad...computers do what you tell them to do!
I had added
echo on
to the function itself.
I removed it later, but somehow the version with that command removed did not get copied successfully to the machine I'm running on.
