So, some time ago, I copied csv data from a webpage into terminal to save it to a csv file, like
echo "field1,field2,field3,...,fieldn, with about 20 lines of text. I did this because I couldn't figure out how to save the csv from the webpage, as the "csv" was just in plain text on the page in comma-separated format. I was able to create a functional cvs file, but it seems each 'row' of the file somehow is stored as a command to run each time I open terminal. There is an ID for each row, so I will see twenty different commands in my history dated to when I opened terminal like so:
I look thru my history often so this is quite annoying and I want to get rid of these seemingly latent, recurring commands. What causes this and how do I fix it?
