In the output of any command I put into the prompt, that command is repeated (sometimes partially). What extremely simple configuration for Zsh do I need to enter to remove this repeat?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Do you use colors in your prompt? This SO question might be related. – simont Dec 12 '12 at 3:15

You probably have a hook-like function doing that, or your prompt is doing it.

I suggest reviewing your configuration files.

FWIW, If you start a new shell with zsh -f, it will skip your configuration files and won't be echo'ing the commands anymore.

I am using oh-my-zsh, so the default configuration files for that is being used (along with color changes). I searched through the .zshrc and associated oh-my-zsh configs but could not see any option related to a repeated input. – user1104160 Dec 12 '12 at 17:27
Turns out that there was a hidden configuration in a separate oh-my-zsh folder, thanks. – user1104160 Dec 20 '12 at 19:35
