I don't know, but I suspect it depends on the stty settings for
the terminal it's running on.  I'm sure it does not buffer and
only write at the end, but probably by default only flushes the
buffer when it reaches some limit.  On a test, I see this sort
of behavior, and only see the very end of the script after terminating
the script session.
