Commands with lots of arguments sometimes use slash escaped newlines to make them easier to read on the web. Here is a silly example
echo -n \ "hello" \ "world"
I'm not sure how to paste and edit this "properly"
Pasted into bash you get
$ echo -n \ > "hello" \ > "world"
Now if I navigate with the back arrow key on OSX, I can only edit the line with
> "world", not the first two lines. Usually I have to paste into a temp file to fix up a command.
Is there a better way to perform this paste which allows editing any line?
bash setting which makes this work in a nicer way?
