osql.exe status output... 1>2>3> etc...

I'm using osql.exe to run some script files and I'm having it write a log file.
The script is running fine and is doing with it should....  but the log file ...
Can anyone tell me what its writing to the log?

Its looks like this:

1>2>3>4>5>6>7>8>9>10>1>2>1>2>1>  etc... sometimes numbering up to >95>96>97  range and repeating over and over.
I'll get several paragraphs of this stuff, and the finally It will print (1 row effected)

What is this stuff?

That means it is reading and parsing the input script at line 1>, 2>... and so on. You can use the -n switch to eliminate the numbering.
