Re: Shift enter produces dot on command line

I see something odd when entering a shift-enter on the command line. A
dot appears which seems not to be interpreted. Also the other characters

Try to type the following:

"echo '" & <shift>+<enter> & <shift>+<enter> & "' | hd | less"

Let & be the concatenation operator, text in double quotes is to be entered verbatim.

For me, it seems that <shift>+<enter> is a nice way to enter a "\n" string without executing the command. Very useful.
